Wild Herbs Smoothie Recipe: Exotic Deadnettle

Wild herbs smoothie recipe with deadnettle

Deadnettle differs from the nettle primarily in the fact that it doesn't actually burn. Depending on the color, it slightly varies in its typical earthy stinging nettle flavor. The white deadnettle used here adds a touch of nectar that perfectly complements the exotic fruits and the spicy chili flavor of this green smoothie.

Wild Herbs Smoothie Recipe: Lion King

Wild herbs smoothie recipe with dandelion

Dandelion tastes quite bitter, a small amount of dandelion leaves is already enough. This valuable herb (good for digestion!) needs a fruity-sweet counterpart, otherwise the bitter taste prevails. We combine it with lamb's lettuce, parsley, banana, pear, sweet dates (medjool dates are best) as well as pineapple and ginger.

Preparation instructions for all wild herbs smoothie recipes:

Depending on the amount of water added, the wild herb smoothie recipes will yield approximately +/- 1/2 liter of green smoothie. If you prefer the smoothies more liquid, just use more water, if you prefer it thicker, only add around 200 ml of water.

Using a high-powered blender:

Since most wild herbs are extremely fibrous and have very strong cell walls, we recommend making wild herb smoothies with a high-speed blender.
Fruits that are used with peel and leafy greens should be washed properly. Peel other ingredients and cut them into coarse pieces if necessary. Add soft fruits to container first, then fill with remaining ingredients, add water until you reach your preference consistency. Blend until a uniform, creamy consistency is achieved. With a powerful blender, this should only take about 1 minute.

Without a high-speed blender:

If you are not using a high-speed mixer, you will need to work in two steps: First step - add the leafy greens and liquid to the blender and blend for about 30 seconds. Second step - add the remaining ingredients and blend until the smoothie consistency is as uniform and creamy as possible.
However, it is nearly impossible for a conventional kitchen blender to break up the wild herb cellulose enough to make the smoothie truly creamy. Small chunks that have not blended properly remain - a disadvantage in terms of taste.

Where do I get wild herbs for my smoothies?

If you don't have a garden and don't want to grow herbs at home, you can collect wild herbs in the wild. You can learn how to do this and how to tell the difference between edible and poisonous herbs in a wild herb tour. You can find offers for wild herb tours in German-speaking countries here.

I fell in love with the first sip. In 2010 a friend of mine served me my first green smoothie. Since then, green smoothies are my absolute favorite breakfast. Quickly prepared, I start my day healthy, delicious and well nourished. I carry the feeling of this delicious healthy breakfast with me all day long - all the way through to the evening.
Nice side effect: Without renunciation or nutritional dogma, green smoothies regulate my desire for coffee, chocolate and all the other temptations.

Hello Tatjana,

thank you very much for your inquiry. To be honest, we have not yet had a request of this kind and accordingly little experience.

What would possibly be the easiest to use is the Primo S. https://gruenesmoothies.com/primo-s-blender-by-bianco-di-puro/

That has the container detection, so can only start when the container sits on and the only control element is the jog dial, which is controllable from 0 to maximum. The container is also quite small and fits in any sink. The blender itself is also relatively compact and fits under most wall cabinets. You just have to make sure that the lid fits tightly every time you blend, otherwise it will be a mess. If you have any further questions, please get in touch!

Greetings to Munich
