Veggie & Fruit Smoothie

Inspiration from Shawn & Tami

Ingredients

1 bunch Chard (or kale, beet greens, etc.)
1 cup frozen or fresh fruit (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, pineapple, etc.)
1 frozen banana
1 cup rice/soy or dairy milk
Optional: add honey or fruit flavored yogurt to sweeten to taste
Directions: Add all ingredients to a blender and puree.  This is a recipe that you can truly experiment with. Use any fruit or greens that you happen to have on-hand or purchase special fruit to make a “tropical” green drink. If you want the drink to be a special green-colored smoothie, try kiwi, avocados, pineapple, and don’t forget the garden greens!

Kids and adults will love these – and you won’t even realize you are getting your daily dose of fruits & veggies!
