There is a recently created group on Facebook called Wild Green Smoothies. The group is a place for people to share knowledge about wild plants, including wild greens, wild fruit and other wild edibles. It’s also a place to share raw recipes using wild ingredients, especially (but not limited to) green smoothie recipes.
In case anyone is wondering, green smoothies are blended leafy greens with fruit. The taste of the fruit dominates the greens, so if made with the right ingredients, green smoothies are delicious and offer tremendous health benefits.
Whether or not you consume green smoothies, the Wild Green Smoothies group is a great place to share knowledge and healthy raw recipes as well as to connect with like-minded people.

cool, i saw your post on gone raw the other day too, i just requested to join ~ i dont blend them but have been juicing wild greens around my yard since spring this year (minus a few months i just spent in bolivia/peru) i do 1/3rds wild foraged,dark greens from store,and fruits/carrots. normally about 2 pints a day. really adds a kick! excited that the purslane is coming up now!
I find that's the best way -- adding some wild ingredients to conventional ingredients. Sometimes wild greens on their own can taste a little strong (with the exception of some mild ones like sow thistle, chickweed, malva, etc.).
But if used in combination with milder tasting greens and sweet fruit, strong tasting wild plants add an interesting flavor.
