Cantaloupe Goji
« on: February 02, 2009, 11:00:59 PM »
I came across this recipe when I was going through an old toolbox written on a Far Side desktop calender paper. It brought back great memories of when this smoothie was a standard. I just love cantaloupe and can not wait for them to come back into season!

1/2 cup     goji berries
2              ripe bananas
1/2           fresh cantaloupe
1/2 cup     soaked chia
1 large      collard leaf (~1 cup chopped)
3/4 cup     dandelion
1 handful   spinach
1 handful   spring mix greens
1 tsp         spirulina
1 tsp         chlorella

Blend and enjoy.
I remember freezing the cantaloupe the night before for a cold smoothie.

Okay, I'm totally lost on this one!  I know cantaloupe, but much of the rest I've never heard of. What are goji berries?  What is soaked chia?  Where do you get dandelion, the back yard?  I never heard of spirulina or chlorella.  Where do you get this stuff?

Goji berries are small red berries from the goji plant that grows in the Himalaya Mountains (purchased as dried berries or as juice).

Chia seeds are seeds from the Chia plant (ever hear of 'Chia Pet'?) grown in Central and South America (purchased as dry seeds).

Spirulina is a cyanobacteria/blue-green algae (a dry powder or tablet)

Chlorella is a green algae (a dry powder or tablet)


I purchase goji and chia here at Nativas and Spirulina and Chlorella from my local health-food store (I have yet to find a good online supplier)

I do harvest dandelion greens in my yard but also buy them at my local health food store as well.
