    Lakshmi, each time I open your site wondering how you'll blow me away and I'm never disappointed.. :)

  14. This will be such a refreshing drink! It's like Indian Raita in a smoothie form! I am sure I can drink up a few mugs of these :)

  16. What a refreshing drink :) I like that it's got just the perfect color of green. Not too much to make it look TOO healthy!

  19. Oh Lakshmi this sounds like liquid raita :) the tadka on the top of beautiful and this is what makes me think of a raita or a light summer yogurt soup. The first photograph of the glistening oil is breathtaking.

    (adore the new format to read/print recipes)

  22. What a lovely recipe! This is my detox day (I'm having 2 per week these days) and I think I'll have that for dinner :-). Thanks so much for a wonderful idea!
    Lakshmi, I have to say, I found your blog through Pinterest, and I am so impressed - your photographs are absolutely amazing (it's actually really difficult to look at them today, when I can only eat unprocessed veggies ;-) ). I am absolutely in love with your site, and will be following from now on! You've got a new fan :-)

  23. Thank you.

    Soma, liquid raita it is :-)

  26. It's a shame that using dairy yoghurt you will essentially negate the benefits of the greens! Studies show that e.g. berries, tea and cocoa lose most of their health benefits if consumed with dairy, because it contains the antinutrient casein.

    Doesn't make much sense to combine healthful veggies with something that isn't just junk food but anti-food, that's not detox, that's just "tox".

      That is really interesting. Could you point me to the studies so I can check the evidence base

  27. Maija, thanks for the information. I'm not an expert in health food diet, nor I'm propagating one. According to ayurveda, yoghurt is incompatible with sour fruits/citrus, mangoes, melons, nightshades and milk for example. Ayurveda is more forgiving regarding food combining than many modern diet recommendations. It is based on different principles.

    It is the first time I hear yoghurt to be called junk food. For whatever reason, it is provocative :-)!

  28. Green smoothies are one of my favorite things to make. Whenever I make a smoothie I add spinach. I love that you can't taste it. :) Martin even likes them.

  29. Two weeks ago our employer announced that we would be moving our office to a
    new location; this was great news considering our company had grown in number quite drastically over the last year.
    Apple Macbook, Dell XPS 15, HP Pavillion dv7, Lenovo G560,
    Sony Vaio. I think i - Pad would be the most wonderful X-mas
    gift this year. The Avaya Nortel customer may also gain access
    to technical documentation, have the ability to log a case,
    and have a status view of outstanding RMAs.
    It's tough for a property that has a cultural or time style that peaked 30 to
    40 years earlier to be competitive with its contemporaries.
    Carpet cleaning in best can be done through any cleaning machine.

    Other than working with all these made to order lanyards with regards to marketing, they can be made use of by lots of providers so that you can discern its team people.
    Human resources is a large, varying discipline so it stands to reason that many who come into the field
