- 1 1/2 oz. of Swiss chard
- 4 oz. pineapple
- 1 banana – peeled
- 1/2 teaspoon of camu powder
- 1 tablespoon of hemp seeds
- 11.5 fl. oz. cactus water
- 1 cup of ice
When ready, simply process all the ingredients together in your favorite blender. You can shake it up or stir it up, then serve and enjoy. Cube or chop vegetables to make them blitz easier before blending. I like to add any leafy vegetables in last, and then add a touch more water if I want the consistency smoother or silkier. Great garnishes include: lemon, celery, chia seeds, or a slice of tomato. Add ice on a hot day to make the drink cooler.
Separate Bananas If you separate bananas, you can make them last longer. When they are left joined in a bunch, they tend to brown quicker, which is great if they aren’t ripe enough yet.
