Swiss Chard Green Smoothie with Lime and Banana

Swiss Chard Lime SmoothieMy last green smoothie post with romaine and coconut milk, was about 2 months ago so I think it’s about time for a new recipe. This green smoothie is refreshing and best enjoyed cold, perfect for the warmer weather. Swiss chard is the main ingredient and you can use any kind of chard, the taste should make no difference. Half of a fresh lime goes into this recipe, including the peel, so finely chop it if you don’t have a powerful blender. The flavor is bright and tangy from the lime, yet very smooth and creamy from the bananas. This particular smoothie is great for the adventurous type and a definite must try for green smoothie lovers!

Lacinato Kale Green Smoothie with Mango and Orange

[This post is part of my Green Smoothie series]

Kale, one of the healthiest greens out there is perfect to use in a smoothie. I typically use curly kale but this time I blended Lacinato or Tuscan kale, of the dinosaur kale variety. A little history lesson: Lacinato kale, enjoyed by the Romans, has been grown in Italy for centuries and is used in much of Italian cuisine. The taste is also a bit milder and sweeter than curly kale, perfect for a morning green smoothie!

It’s smooth and creamy with a hint of cinnamon, the perfect flavor during the holidays.
