We love smoothies. And with all the smoothies we’ve made, I’ve never gotten the nerve to add dark leafy greens. And I know they must taste good, ’cause they wouldn’t sell them at smoothie stores otherwise.

So in celebration of Earth Day, and because the beautiful green chard in the frig is getting limp by the hour, I finally committed to a first attempt.

Red Chard-fruit smoothie. Would the family be willing to drink it? Packed full of chlorophyll, folic acid, vitamins A, C, K, and iron…the list goes on and on.

And? We were all licking our smoothie mustaches and re-filling our mugs with seconds. Yes. Even my two and four year olds! Our take is that chard is indeed a great ingredient to mix with fruit. (Yay, now I have
something else to use my withering dark greens for when I discover them a
day too late.)

Here’s what I mixed up today:

And in celebration of our planet, we had a simple dinner tonight, filled
with plenty of fruit, nuts and vegetables. Cheers! And, do you dare?
Or, are you already a leafy green smoothie lover?
