Recently, I've been experimenting with adding asparagus to my smoothies. Why? Well asparagus is loaded with more nutrients than I've seen in most other vegetables. One cup of raw asparagus contains:
20% DV Vitamin A
13% DV Vitamin C
16% DV Iron
70% DV Vitamin K
17% DV Folate
11% Dietary Fiber
The recipes that I did find online either added sweeteners (e.g., tablespoons of honey, vanilla) or just did not taste that great. So after a couple of trials and errors of my own, I came up with this delicious recipe that, not only disguises the unpleasant taste of raw asparagus, but also adds a bunch of other nutrients.
1/2 cup blackberries
2 cups almond milk
2-3 asparagus stalks (bump it up to 4-5 if you are brave enough)
1 tbsp natural peanut butter
Note: my fruits and vegetables are usually frozen after purchasing, but you can use fresh ones if you want and just toss in some ice for more of a smoothie texture.
Just blend all the ingredients together and enjoy!
