Andrea Bemis is the creator of Dishing Up The Dirt, a popular food blog that documents the farm fresh meals that Bemis makes for herself and her husband, Taylor.

And when we say farm fresh—we mean it. The Bemises live and work on their farm near the Deschutes River in Oregon, where the green-thumbed couple grow a wide array of gorgeous, organic seasonal produce that they sell to restaurants and at local farmers’ markets.

All the writing recipes, cooking, and snapping photos, after a day of farming doesn’t come without some serious stamina. “Working from sunrise until sunset on our farm requires a lot of physical energy and there’s nothing more powerful than a hearty green juice to kick start the day,” Bemis says. “I honestly can’t start the day without a green juice.”

But working only with the ingredients from a seasonal farm, Bemis is forced to get creative with her juice recipes from season to season. Turns out that’s a good thing. “I think variety is key. Switching things up so I don’t get bored with my morning juice is a must,” she says.

Sound familiar? Here’s a super sippable, seasonal smoothie recipe from the Bemis’s Oregon farm kitchen. —Jamie McKillop
