One thing that was reinforced on our visit to Auroville was the powerful flavours of fresh local food. Anandi of Satchiananda Cafe and Krishna of Solitude Farm are both quite famous for their smoothies. We enjoyed a reviving green and minty smoothie during our visit, which worked wonders to beat the heat and restore our sagging energy.
Back home, we like to make this simple and delicious smoothy in the spring when we can forage for Stinging Nettle, but it’s good anytime. It’s guaranteed to put spring into your step whatever time of year you drink it.
