Ginger Melon Mealworm Smoothie

The other day I created my very own super food smoothie in my new vitamix and I have to share the recipe with you!  Here is the basic idea:  One chunk ginger, a tablespoon or so of spirulina, a handful of dandelion greens, a handful of honey dew, 1 tablespoon of Mealworms, ice and water= delicious.  Sometimes I will add half of a banana because I love the consistency it creates.  It doesn’t seem like all these ingredients would be good together, but the mealworms add a nutty flavor and the melon and ginger cover up the bitterness of the dandelions and the pond-like taste of the spirulina.  I hardly ever measure anything so you might want to play around with the ratios until you get it the way you like.  Let me know what you think:)

Author: Action is Eloquence

I live in Grants Pass, Oregon with my wonderful husband and am in the process of re-imagining a new life for myself! I just moved from Portland where I spent the last 11 years on a metaphorical runway and now am ready to take off. College, a marriage, several customer service jobs, death, fear and shyness were all teachers, but it's time for me to take what I learned and use my talents to make a better life for myself and give back to the community. I have a passion for helping people remember their relationship with nature. I went to Portland State University where I earned my Masters in Educational Leadership and Policy with a specialization in Sustainability Education. I enjoy blogging because it is a way for me to help others regain this relationship and learn how to care for the Earth by living more simply and mindfully. Traditional cooking, natural building, living simply, permaculture and ecopsychology are my favorite subjects and I have a new obsession with eating bugs as a way to help live a more sustainable life. I only appear quiet and reserved until someone gets me going any of these topics!
