There’s a good reason behind the current mania for green smoothies — these potent concoctions are packed full of calcium, fiber, and vitamins. (Which means they’re a great add-on for those days when you opt for a burger instead of a salad for lunch.) But, whipping up a green smoothie at home can pose a bit of a challenge, especially if you want it to taste like something other than pulverized kale.
Luckily, JoAnna Hawthorne of Hawthorne Homemade in Cleveland Park has offered up a recipe for her so-tasty Green Goddess smoothie. Hawthorne says this smoothie is a hit among her patrons because it’s good for you and goes down easy. Click through to learn how to add some drinkable green goodness to your diet.
Hawthorne Homemade’s Green Goddess Smoothie
1/2 cup fresh or frozen pineapple chunks
1/2 cup fresh or frozen mango
1 cup spinach leaves
1 kale leaf
1/2 cup apple juice, coconut water, or water
1/2 cup ice
Combine all ingredients in a blender and enjoy!
The Green Juice Goddess of DC May 20, 2013
Need a quick cure for your embarrassing acne? Are you fed up with your caffeine addiction? Then step into the laboratory of the Hawthorne Organic Juice Bar for a cleansing and detoxifying drinking experience.
The owner, Jo Anna Hawthorne, is a 17 year veteran of juicing. After working in the corporate world, she decided to make the leap into juicing for profit, not just for her personal health.
At first she decided to pack her bags and open up a juice bar in San Francisco, CA. Once relocating, she changed her mind and moved back to Washington DC. This time bringing with her a taste of the west coast organic health scene. Now Jo Anna openly shares her juicing secrets that help her to maintain a youthful glow.
Jo Anna stresses that we begin to eat natural foods that match the colors of the rainbow. I enjoyed the “Glowing Skin” juice which is a blend of parsley, carrots, ginger, apple and kale. I also finished it off with an albacore tuna melt and house salad.
What I loved about the juice bar was Jo Anna’s willingness to discuss the basics of juicing. She suggests only using organic green vegetables and experimenting with different varieties of greens for maximum nourishment.
Hawthorne Homemade Organic is a great addition to the DC healthy eating movement. It is conveniently located off of Wisconsin Avenue NW along a friendly strip of local stores and restaurants.
Visit Hawthorne Homemade and order the signature drink, “The Hawthorne Effect”. You will leave with more vitality and natural energy to get you through the day!
The Habit November 2012
Tucked into a quiet corner of Cleveland Park (the tree-lined neighborhood favored by the capital’s literary elite, including David Brooks and dozens of Washington Post writers) is Hawthorne Homemade, an organic juice bar and market whose Hawthorne Seasonal Cleanses keep New Republic and Slate staffers sharp. At a rough-hewn wood bar plucked from the famed Capitol Hill watering whole Hawk ‘n’ Dove, locals can order green smoothies, juice cocktails, and raw salad wraps blended with homegrown wheatgrass and roughage from nearby Virginia farms.
