Flower Power

by Gabriel Constans

Deja vu! This is a beautiful, colorful, nostalgic drink, brimming with healthy ingredients. Dandelion greens are a good diuretic; chamomile is a relaxant; red clover blossom is a blood purifier; and sage relieves sore throats. These can be found in most natural food stores, or n your garden or fields.

This smoothie was inspired by the “flower children” of the 1960s, who congregated in San Francisco and preached a lifestyle of peace and love. Burning incense and wearing a peace symbol and flowers in your hair while making this smoothie are optional, but recommended.

Yield: 4 cups

2 cups milk (dairy or non-dairy)
4 tablespoons honey or brown rice syrup (or agave)
4 tablespoons vanilla ice cream (or rice or soy)
2 mint leaves, chopped, or 1 tablespoon dried mint
2 tablespoons flower petals from nasturtium, dandelion greens, chamomile, red clover blossom, sage, and rose petal (as available).

Place all the ingredients in a blender, and blend on medium speed for 1 minute.
Pour, drink, dance and “let the sunshine, let the sunshine in”.
