Blood Orange and Rainbow Chard Smoothie


Over the last year I have had a surprising amount of people tell me they just can’t get into green smoothies because of the color. I would hate for people to miss out on the nutrients, so I created this delicious drink which has so much rich color added, it masks the green! Before this, I never put rainbow chard in my smoothie. I’m usually partial to baby spinach because it blends up so smoothly. If you haven’t seen it before, it’s a hearty leafy green with red veins and stalks. It is really beautiful!

Blood oranges are my currently obsession, so I couldn’t leave those out.
