Author Notes: I’ve always underestimated rosemary until I tried using it in a cookie recipe recently. The piney, sweet and savoury flavour and aroma is a perfect complement to the lemon zest and pine nuts I used in the cookie. The recipe is on my blog if you’re interested.
Armed with a new found respect for rosemary’s versatility beyond roasted potatoes and soup I decided to toss some into my snack smoothie one day and there you have it, an alternate use for rosemary. It adds another dimension to the sweet smoothie, balancing it out with an earthy note that is complemented by the lemon juice. Hope you enjoy it. —Nissrine @ Harmony à la Carte
