Green Super-food Smoothie
I enjoy a green, “super-food” smoothie almost every morning, switching up the
greens I use between Red Russian kale from my garden, Swiss chard from Big River
farms, or even sometimes lettuce. This smoothie is a whole-foods meal and is great
on the go.
Prep note: If you do not have a high speed blender, such as a Vitamix or Bledtec,
you may need to have the frozen bananas and greens chopped, otherwise just throw
them in whole.
1-2 big bunches Swiss chard, leaves cleaned well
1 large banana, frozen
1 C organic strawberries, fresh or frozen
4 deglet or 3 Medjool dates, pitted
1 C plain, whole milk yogurt
¼ C canned coconut milk or 1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 cup filtered water
1 Tbls fresh lemon/lime juice
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground turmeric
Blend all ingredients in the blender until uniformly smooth, or about 1 minute. If
needed add a bit more water for a pourable consistency.
