Smoothie with a kick

By Anonymous - 02/07/2021 02:01 - Germany

Today, I made myself a smoothie with fruits and wild greens, which tasted much better than it looked, so I licked the splashes off the blender’s lid. Including a stray leaf that didn’t get blended. Which turned out to be stinging nettle. FML

Why did you not check for toxic plants in your “wild” greens? It could have been much worse!

That's not how nettles work... they can be blended up or boiled down and they won't sting. People use them in tea etc.

Stinging Nettles aren't very toxic to humans, we make tea out of them.

Yes, but that’s different from just licking a stinging nettle leaf. My point was that op could have ended up with actually toxic plants by not checking.

Wow, good thing you figured it out before you got to find out what being stung from the inside is like.
