arugula smoothie

arugula smoothie by joanie

The orange is the key to this recipe. It balances the arugula so nicely. I simplified the New York Times recipe and replaced the yogurt and walnuts with almond milk. I've tried the original, and believe me my version tastes better!


  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 orange, peeled and seeded
  • 1 bartlett pear
  • 1 handful baby arugula (about 2-3 oz)
  • 1" ginger, peeled
3 cups


Combine the ingredients in a blender and process on high until smooth (about 1-3 minutes depending on the blender).

5 minutes
