Hey, I've finally given up on gardening (for this year at least), so I'm trying to make the most of the plants that are already in my yard. I've tried nettles a few ways (you just have to cook them slightly, puree or pound them to remove the sting). Fruit smoothies are my favorite so far. You can really use any smoothie recipe and just throw in a big handful of rinsed fresh nettle leaves (use rubber gloves or something to pick them) but I put my favorite recipe in this post: http://www.ironcityalchemy.com/2012/03/nom-nom-gnome-nettle-berry-smoothie.html

2 large smoothies

3 cup Nettle, roughly chopped

1 large banana

1 cup oat milk/almond milk/other veggie milk

1.2 cup mixed frozen berries

0.5 tsp pure vanilla

10 drops stevia concentrate

1 organic lemon, zest & juice

1. Rinse and roughly chop the nettles and add it to the blender along with all other ingredients.

2. Blend thoroughly (about 1-2 minutes depending on your blender) this makes the stings disappear and it breaks down the cellular walls of the nettles which makes the nutrition more available for your body to absorb.

3. Add some frozen berries and say cheers!
