Veggie Smoothies - Recipe 6

This is a smoothie from a few days ago, featuring prized ingredients:

I do not know very much about the health benefits of figs; but I love them! I enjoy black mission figs fresh, while I prefer Turkish figs dried. Either way, they are spectacular. I am aware that they contain substantial amounts of calcium (considering that they are fruits). Three dried mission figs provides approximately eighty milligrams (80 mg) of calcium. That's pretty good!

Recipe 6 - makes 5.5 cups

  • 2 cups of beet greens, stems, and beets
  • 2 cups of carrots
  • 1/2 of a lemon with some skin and all seeds
  • 1 cup of figs
Personal Take: Pretty good smoothie. It definitely tasted like vegetables, though the figs gave a slight sweetness. The carrots impacted the color again, but it did not bother anyone. I left more of the zest this time, and you could taste it. Again, not bothersome to me or anyone else (I think). My mom did mention the thickness; I am going to have to use more water. =)
