Fresh and Wild Fruitberry Shake

Adults and kids adore the wild strawberry plant, one of the most familiar and tastiest on the planet.

The familiar red fruit, much smaller than the cultivated version, ripens in the late spring or early summer, and goes out of season two weeks later. Nothing poisonous looks like the common strawberry, but there’s a similar wood strawberry, which is in season much longer, is edible and colorful, but has absolutely no flavor.

Look for the common strawberry in fields and meadows, at the edges of trails, and along borders of woods throughout the country. Here is a great berry smoothie recipe perfect for wild strawberries and

2 cups apple juice or other unsweetened fruit juice
1 cup wild strawberries
1/2 cup fresh blueberries, picked over for stems
, 1/2 cup drained silken tofu
1 ripe banana, peeled
3 apricots, pitted
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon dried wild spearmint or other mint, finely crumbled
1/4 teaspoon liquid stevia or 2 tablespoons honey.

In a blender, combine all the ingredients and process until smooth.
Serves 5
