Stinging Nettle Green Smoothie

This is just delicious!  Stinging nettle is a wild edible that grows in many areas of the United States.  It will leave a sting if you touch the leaves, but if you squish the leaves and stalks and put them in your blender, they make a WONDERFUL stinging nettle smoothie!  If you have access to nettle, you’ve just got to try this, you won’t believe how good it is!
