Iron Sunshine

Vegetarian sources of iron are hard to come by. Molasses is a great source at 15% per tablespoon. Dulse and oranges have nutrients to support absorption. Further, the addition of a small amount of cabbage (or other sulfur vegetable such as kale, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, or broccoli) will boost the absorption of the amino acids found in dulse, raising the complete protein level.

2 juice oranges, seeded and peeled
1 tablespoon blackstrap molasses
1 teaspoon dulse powder
1/2 cabbage leaf (or other sulphur vegetable)
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup ice cubes

Place all ingredients in the wet container. Turn on variable speed 1, increase to 10, then high. Blend 30 - 60 seconds to reach desired smoothness.
