I like getting produce from farmers’ markets. Because it’s seasonal produce direct from farmers there are a few benefits: it tastes better, is way less expensive and you can talk to the people who work on the farm.
I went to the Alemany Farmers Market here in San Francisco this past weekend. Here is a late summer smoothie recipe, about 245 calories per person, enough for 2 people:
1 ripe nectarine, remove the pit and cut into quarters - about 63 calories
1 ripe plum, remove the pit and cut into quarters - about 38 calories
⅓ cup walnuts halves and pieces - about 190 calories
¼ cup golden raisins - about 123 calories
½ cucumber, cut up - about 9 calories
1 oz spinach (hand full) - about 6.5 calories
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast - about 20 calories
½ cup unsweetened non dairy milk, I used hemp. (hemp, rice, oat, flax, almond) - about 40 calories
1 ice cube
½ cup water (if you like a thinner texture use 1 cup of water)
small pinch of salt
Put all the ingredients into a blender and purée until smooth. Enjoy!
Note - you can also add ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon and ½ teaspoon turmeric if you want a little spice.
