Green smoothies aren’t usually my Friday go-to. Green smoothies are a Monday thing. Bright-eyed and ready for the week, I sip a green smoothie as I zoom off to school. Fridays are for pizza and bourbon slushes and treating myself to Dutch train station goodies.

But not this Friday. Because it’s been one of those weeks where the only way to get through it is by having ice cream before dinner. I don’t handle stress well. And so, friends, I bring to you this watercress smoothie!

Watercress has a really distinct flavor. Powerful and a bit spicy! So it doesn’t blend into the background like other leafy greens might (like spinach in smoothies), but instead it contributes a little something something. We’re pairing it with tropical flavors today. Pineapple, mango, orange, banana…so much yum! So whip this up today as you wind down from the week (then proceed with the aforementioned pizza and bourbon slush because, well, Friday).
