It wouldnt surprise me at all because it makes so much sense and its tastes so amazing...this cant be the first.
Here it is.
Aloe Vera...a wonderful beauty food. Be sure to rub the excess all over your body...seriously.
Prickly Pear Cactus Fruit, otherwise known as Indian Figs. Known to treat type 2 diabetes, and they simply taste wonderful along with the spectacular color they provide.
Try and get in different colors into your diet. Especially purples and pinks and reds and blues. And of course green...but we figured that one out already.
And then to round it out...Agave. Totally optional of course, but you may want to sweeten it up a bit.
Or try some kind of desert honey if agave isnt your thing right now.
Its fun to make smoothies that come from the same bio-region. Everything coming from the desert or the Mediterranean region. Think of it...when I make a smoothie with apples AND mangoes.. something just doesnt feel right. I think I need to keep things more localized.
Enjoy this smoothie...it wasnt expensive either. You can find the aloe leaves for around $2, and the prickly pear cactus for 75 cents-$1.
What a lovely smoothie for springtime too...youll love it!
