1 1/2 oz. of Swiss chard
3 kiwis – peeled
1 banana – peeled
4 tablespoons of almonds
1 teaspoon of wheatgrass powder
1 cup of water
1 cup of ice
When ready, simply process all the ingredientstogether 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.
Tips to Add in More Smoothies are awesome because they allow you to add in protein powders and nuts or seeds as well. There is really no limit to what you can add. Go for it as long as it aids your health progression!
