Pineapple gives this smoothie an attitude. This is a tangy, sweet way to drink those greens. The lemon rind masks the after taste of the greens.
3 leaves swiss chard, remove stems
1½ cup pineapple
½ cup ice
1 cup water
1 inch slice of lemon rind
Place all ingredients in your high speed blender and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
Intersting you bring this up. I made a swiss chard smoothie the other day.
few leaves of chard, 1/2 orange, 1 bannana, some water, zoom zoom in my vitamix and it was great!
I'm glad you'll try swiss chard. I recommend adding the lemon rind in all green smoothies, as it gets rid of the aftertaste of the greens.
I love swiss chard. It has such a beautiful taste. I never done green smoothies last year, but now I do. I am going to grow some more this year and drink them.
I've never tried swiss chard in a smoothie, but I do prefer my smoothies tangy rather than really sweet so I'm definitely going to try this one. :)
