This berry smoothie is the perfect way to cool down in this (crazy) warm February weather. It’s also a great way to get multiple fruit and vegetable servings in one sitting. For those who are picky eaters (including myself), the best part is you can’t even taste the chard! You get all of the health benefits and self-fulfillment knowing you got a serving of greens in, with none of the weird tastes that fruit-veggie combo smoothies sometimes have. Whip this up in five minutes and enjoy.
Makes 1 large smoothie
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup blackberries
- 1/2 cup strawberries
- 1 cup chard
- 3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Cut the banana into chunks then place all the ingredients into a blender and pulse until blended.
- Pro tip: If you like thick, milkshake-like smoothies, use frozen fruit
- Pro tip: To make sure the chard blends well tear it into pieces and place at the bottom of the blender so the blades have direct access to it
