Purple #juice experiment or when wild cactus fruits meet dandelion leaves

My son and I went on a magnificent bike ride, soaking in the soft sun rays and amazing bright afternoon light. Along the road, we picked some wild cactus fruits.

I could not wait to experiment with these beauties. However I did not want to create a 100% fruit juice because I do not want to make my insulin levels peak.

So I added a nice bunch of dandelion leaves freshly picked from the garden.

The result? An out-of-this-world color, a dense and mesmerizing purple.

My lesson? Use a powerful blender only for this type of recipe, like the vitamix or blentec. I own a cheap blender which was not able to pulverize the seeds not the spikes of the cactus fruits.

What do you think my friend my sister?
