Day 1 - September 2013 GSC

Welcome to our Monthly Green Smoothie Challenge!

Luckily I found dandelion greens in the local Quality Foods store - and am looking for dandelion seeds to grow in the greenhouse. If you have never tried them you are in for a treat!
Dandelion GS
Yield: 1 quart

2 cups purified water
2 cups frozen mango chunks
1 banana, peeled
2 cups dandelion greens, stems removed
  • In a blender, mix together
  • The soluble fibre in mango make this GS thick and creamy

  • The mineral content of dandelion greens is notable:  4 cups (220 g) of chopped dandelion greens contains 411 mg of calcium, 6.8 mg of iron, 873 mg of potassium, and 79 mg of magnesium
  • Dandelions are known to lower cholesterol, help heal the liver, fight gout, lower blood pressure, and alkalize pH levels in the body
