awesome smoothie recipe // berry + sorrel smoothie

hi everybody! 
when i was blogging on a regular basis, i always enjoyed creating new recipes and sharing them. [feel free to check out the recipe box tab!] in the past few months [more?], i havent had a lot of time to focus on new recipes.

blake & i are CSA members ; this is actually my 4th year as a member [all with different farms] & an abundance of food is just what i need to start creating new recipes again.

do you know sorrel? it kinda looks like a 'more wrinkle-y' spinach and its delish. its got this really strong, original flavor ; almost like a lemon-y kiwi. i was eating a few leaves straight out of the bag! you can read more about sorrel here.

blake and i [mostly blake] put this green smoothie recipe together.
sorrel & berry power smoothie
serves 2 // 
what you need :
*1 cup sorrel leaves [chopped up into small pieces]
*1 cup spinach leaves [also, chopped up into small pieces]
*1 cup strawberries, frozen
*1/2 banana, frozen
*1 1/2 cup almond milk, plain or vanilla
*1/3 cup shredded coconut
*2 tbsp honey, LOCAL! 

how to do it : 
1) add everything into a blender & blend
*note : i add the milk, than the fruits & add in the greens in last!

this smoothie is delish!
i highly recommend seeking out some sorrel at your local co-op or farmers market this summer!
