Frozen spinach (take 1-2 cubes from the bag), finely chopped leek, one small shallot onion, chopped finely, quickly fry in an almost dry pan. The pan should only be sprinkled with olive oil, or you can hold the vegetables over the steam for 3-4 minutes. Also, a microwave oven is suitable for this purpose; in general, in any convenient way, make an easy heat treatment of vegetables.
Fresh cucumber and Chinese cabbage leaf is added to the drink raw, just cut the cucumber into slices and chop the cabbage before sending the ingredients to the blender. Chinese cabbage will make a smoothie thick, this will appeal to those who love drinks that you can eat with a spoon.
So, we put in the blender cooled spinach with onions, sliced cucumber, shredded Chinese cabbage, add skimmed kefir (or yogurt) and salt the ingredients to taste. Put in a blender a few sprigs of dill. Few dill and cucumber slices are left to decorate the cocktail.
Beat the drink until it is smooth and smooth in consistency, poured into a cup or glass.

Make a cut in a round cucumber slice and put it on the edge of the mug.
