    • The recipe I’m about to share is said to have been
      created by a former cook of The Dalai Llama named


      I don’t know if that’s true or not, but I do know
      that you’ll love this tasty and healthy smoothie
      IF you take the time to actually try it.

      So shake a leg and give a try to...

      Tenzin’s Breakfast Shake

      Fresh spinach
      1/2 large papaya
      1 handful of parsley
      1 handful of dandelion root
      1 or 1 1/2 bananas
      The freshly squeezed juice of 4 oranges

      To make this delicious drink, fill your blender
      about halfway with fresh spinach. Add one half of
      a large papaya, and a handful each of parsley and
      dandelion root. Add at least one banana (we prefer
      one and a half).

      Pour in fresh-squeezed orange juice about three
      fingers high on the blender. This is about the
      juice of four oranges. And, yes, you can use
      supermarket orange juice too, though the final
      result won’t be nearly as good or as healthy.
      Then blend until smooth.

      Try this smoothie.

      You‘re missing out on something special if you

        • I love having breakfast shakes in AM. Wow. Spinach
          in the morning....and in a shake. I will give it a try.
          I am hoping the fruit takes over and wipes out the
          spinach, parsley and dandelion root (where does one get this?)
          How many servings is this?

        • You can get dandelion either a) in your own front yard...and I think they mean the green leaves and not the root or b) if you have a natural foods coop.  They sell dandelion in our farmer’s market too.

          My granpa used to make dandelion wine!!
