One of my summer favorites? Dandelion smoothies! These flower-powered concoctions are a great liver and kidney cleanser that doesn’t deplete potassium. Find out how I make mine, below:

Organic Garden Girl™ Fun Fact: The origin of the word dandelion comes from the French term “dent de lion,” meaning “lion’s tooth” —  a reference to the bloom’s coarsely toothed leaves.
