lemon cress smoothie

Cress or garden cress does contain lots of vitamins and some minerals. And I’m a fan of this herb. As a kid I got freshly harvested garden cress on a cream buttered sweet bread. With sugar on top. Yep. Heaven. It’s a herb that you could grow indoors, in the garden or on your balcony. And naturally. To buy in a carton at your local supermarket. It has this nutty bitter taste that is perfect with honey and yoghurt. To make a quick smoothie for on the go.
