red mulberry green smoothie

i love where i live.  we moved from a really cool 1930s house to this one about four years ago, and i love that we live a little off the beaten path.  we have land - which means we see deer, turkey and beavers and lots of toads, snakes, and field mice all the time. in addition to our plentiful garden, we also have wild strawberries, morels and mulberries out the wazoo.  when the mulberries ripen, i take my colander outside and just fill it up, over and over again.  don't worry - there are plenty left for the birds, i only pick the ones that i can reach, and i still have to freeze them because there is no way i could eat them all before they'd go bad.

  • 3/4 cup red mulberries
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup water
  • ice (optional)

put everything in a regular blender and go for it.  green smoothie tip - don't put the spinach in first.  :)   also, my mulberries were frozen ones from the late spring harvest, but if you are using fresh ones, i'd throw in a couple ice cubes.



ps - if you know anything about glassware, i bought these glasses in an antique store about 5 years ago.  it's a set of 6 tumblers.  i don't know anything about them, if they are vintage or not, but whatever wisdom you might have, i'd love to know.

I'm not sure I've ever eaten a mulberry. Do they taste like blackberries?

YUMMMM. You're so lucky to have access to such a super food in your own backyard!!! Not only are mulberries rammed with amazing phytonutrients... but they are also very high in iron. :-)

I don't have a clue about those glasses, but they're adorable!

I've never had mulberries either. YAY for having some land and seeing wildlife- and sharing with them!

I'm SO jealous! I dream of having my own land someday. Born and raised and still living in Saudi Arabia as an expat means I've never had my own house or land. It is illegal for anyone but Saudis or GCC nationals to own a house or land here.

Whenever we move somewhere other than here I want a little ramshackle cottage out in the country somewhere. And to grow and pick my own food would be a dream come true. You are so lucky, your mulberries look beautiful!

I've still never had a mulberry- They don't grow anywhere near me, so I'm jealous!

The beauty of the mulberry tree is the berries ripen at different times but as for taste, the issue is in the air. I have yet to try them. I bought three mulberry trees for Minnesota.
