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!

Clean and roughly chop Swiss chard, stems removed. Add Swiss chard, banana, lime and ice into blender.
