Rosemary Orange Smoothie
From a culinary standpoint, one of the things I most appreciate about smoothies is how easy it is to create truly sophisticated flavor profiles, with about the same effort as doing a load of laundry. This show-stopping blend is a shining example of breathtaking natural flavors working together in harmony.
Makes 2 16-ounce servings
¼ cup dried white mulberries
¼ cup raw cashews
3 cups baby spinach
2 tablespoons mashed avocado
1 teaspoon orange zest
1½ teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
1½ cups orange juice
2 cups ice
sweetener, to taste
Blend together all the ingredients, except the ice, until smooth. Add the ice and blend once more until frosty. Taste, and sweeten as desired.
