Spinach Soup/Pudding/Smoothie

Local produce is becoming more and more available. Finally the season is here to enjoy the local harvests. Today I purchased a large bag of beautiful spinach. Strawberries are deliciously sweet and juicy, have been freezing them. Growing my own herbs is such a treat, ready at hand. This soup/pudding is absolutely tasty, light and very satisfying.

for 2 people

a good amount of spinach, about 2 big handfuls, washed, I break the stems off
1 large mango peeled and cut into pieces
a handful of frozen strawberries
4 or 5 leaves of spearmint
1 date
water- start with 1/4 cup add more as needed


the gentle taste of the mint makes it fresh and light.
