Do Raw Nettles Sting?

We have a smoothie monster living in our house.

Everything and anything seems to land in the liquidiser.


Today’s vitamin packed liquid lunch was pineapple, nettle and spinach. It was a glorious colour but the question was ‘is it going to sting’ There’s definitely a buzzy background to the drink but we’re still here to tell the tale so I guess they don’t if they’re liquidised. The woofas looked very sceptical but they have been here for a couple of weeks by now and are becoming quite adventurous. The smoothie monster convinced them that this was the ultimate way to consume nettles – far more nutritious than soup or tortilla!
