Five New Recipes to Try
You can experiment with anything. Wednesday's New York Times offered five delicious-looking recipes that are worth trying:
Green Smoothie with Cucumber & Cumin: kefir, celery, cucumber, parsley, mint, kale or spinach, ginger, chia seeds, lightly toasted cumin, lemon juice and a pinch of cayenne. This is the most complicated recipe and perhaps the most interesting.
Pear Smoothie with Celery & Ginger: this includes a pear, spinach, celery, banana, ginger, chia seeds, kefir, agave nectar, arugula and mint. In the past, I felt arugula adds too much flavor but the mint and ginger would mask it.
Blueberry Kefir Smoothie with Greens: contains only blueberries, kefir, banana, chia seeds, spinach or kale, and a teaspoon of honey (which I would eliminate).
Green Smoothie with Pineapple, Arugula, Greens & Cashews: features pineapple, orange juice, raw cashews, chia seeds, ginger, baby greens and arugula.
Pineapple Basil Smoothie: pineapple, basil leaves, kefir, honey, pistachios and chia seeds. This sounds delicous!
