Mariam’s Super Smoothie

We went to my cousin Mariam’s house for lunch on a warm lazy Sunday afternoon. We had the typical Somali smorgasbord of various delicious dishes, but the standout for me was this amazing smoothie. It had celery, mint, mango, orange and tamarind – an unusual combination that just worked beautifully together. My son, who hates vegetables, gulped it down and asked for more!
