This morning I was rather brave and made something I had never tried before. A Rainbow Swiss Chard smoothie. Holy canolies Batman, it is possible to drink your vegetables… and like them too.
I felt like I should have been standing in a tree house in Berkeley while I was drinking it, or at the very least REI. Swiss chard smoothies have a very earthy taste to them. For a second there I thought I was sipping roasted beets. It was good. Just different than the typical Jamba Juice smoothie flavors I’m used to.
- 1 cup rainbow Swiss chard, well packed
- 2 cups strawberries, frozen
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 cup Cranberry Juice
Toss everything into a blender and hit the smoothie button. Blend until nice and smooth. Drink up and enjoy!
So, Mavis wants to know: Do you drink smoothies? What is the most unusual combination of ingredients you have tried in your smoothie?
