I love mugwort, dried or fresh it does not matter. The aroma sends me into heady reverie, and I love making drinks with it, and adding it to fruit salads etc.
This evening I wanted something a little different, more a scented fruit drink, and so I went to work. Out popped this divine smoothie, giving mugwort centre stage.
Put all ingredients into a blender. Start blending slowly, then increase speed incrementally. Drink and enjoy!
