White asparagus is sometimes only seasonally available, but this recipe works with green as well.

Smoothie experimenting is so much fun, even more so if you don’t force yourself to stick to recipes and just try out combinations of what you have in your fridge and in your fruit bowl. That’s how strawberries and asparagus came in. In a smoothie, the pairing is even a bit more subtle. Raw asparagus is currently quite popular on the blogosphere, and I have to admit that of course I tried it and loved the fresh taste but couldn’t get used to the consistency. Well, no problem at all when it’s mixed up.
