Pesto Punch

Why We Love It: Pesto is a great way to add nutrients, flavors, and greens to a dish, but is also a great dip and spread for veggies or bread.

Serves 4


  • 1 bunch of basil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 cups of spinach
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups of nuts (almonds and walnuts)

NOTE: You can add a touch more oil or water if you need to get the consistency smoother
