I love sharing new recipes that can are easy to make part of a healthy weekly menu. Fruity green smoothies are easy to rely on for simple and delicious breakfasts and snacks and they provide so much flexibility – you can add or subtract whatever additional ingredients you’re in the mood for.
This morning I started my day off as usual; in the kitchen hanging out with my blender. When I noticed that I was out of spinach – my personal favorite green for smoothies – I decided to give Swiss chard a chance. I’m glad I did because the result was so tasty and filling it made the perfect thing to eat post morning workout! I didn’t plan on making this smoothie, but sometimes when wonderful things happen you just have to go with it! I loved the smoothie so much that I’m sharing it with you!
