My Turkish Delight

This silky smooth delight was inspired by a morning on the sundrenched patio at Sofra Bakery and Cafe in Cambridge, MA.   After a bit of online research and some experimentation I ended up with the following.   Drink and enjoy.

Put everything in your blender in the following order and blend until smooth.

1.5 cups water
2-3 cups baby spinach
2 medjool dates
2 stalks of celery
1/2 a large cucumber
1 granny smith apple
2 tbs of protein powder (I used hemp for this one)
1/2  lemon, peeled and no seeds
1/2 to 1 cup labneh (sub fav greek yogurt if you don’t have labneh)
Pinch of sea salt to taste

Optional:

– A pinch of ground cumin to taste (go easy)
– 1/2 tsp of fennel seed
– Top with a garnish of fresh mint
– Use the salt on the rim of your glass instead of in the smoothie
