Okra Smoothies

The garden is full of okra by this time of year. In my past life I would have made fried okra by the bucket full. But now I find myself coming up with new ideas about okra. One of those has been to add them to my morning smoothie. I have been adding 3 or 4 to each one.

Contrary to what you might think, I rather like the taste. Plus okra is a fairly good source of Iron and vitamin c. So with that in mind be sure to include some sort of citrus as well to help with the uptake of the iron.
