You will not believe how good this smoothie tastes despite looking like lawnmower juice! Feel free to add or subtract what you have on hand and what you like in terms of taste. Be careful to not go overboard on the fruit – this is a green (i.e. vegetable) smoothie designed to deliver great nutrient-dense antioxidants and phytonutrients from vegetables with the fruit added to sweeten and lessen any bitterness from the chard, kale and spinach.

For a fantastic breakfast, serve with either eggs, some Yambanana Bread, or some bacon (uncured – no nitrites or nitrates) or organic sausage.

1 large handful of spinach
2 kale leaves
1-2 chard leaves
1 banana
1 orange, peeled
1 avocado
1-2 tablespoons coconut oil-
1-2 cups purified water, or combination of water, coconut water, almond milk, hemp seed milk
Frozen berries, frozen pineapple chunks (available at Trader Joe’s), pomegranate seeds

Add all ingredients to Vita Mix blender and blend thoroughly (1-2 minutes)

      • Can be put into glass jars and refrigerated for up to 36 hours

NOTE: Any smoothie can be made into a meal replacement by simply adding the following:
1 organic raw or hardboiled egg*
1-2 tbsp lemon-flavored fish oil
*Use fresh, local and organic eggs (not mass-produced supermarket brands)
