Green Chard Smoothie

 

This week I’m so excited to be making my smoothies in my new Vitamix!!! And this green chard smoothie is the first thing I have ever made in it- and let me tell you it’s delicious!

This smoothie is fresh, light, and oh so delicious. The chard, which is the feature of this smoothie is a non-goitrogenic green (for all of you with any thyroid issues) and it’s also absolutely packed with electrolytes like magnesium, potassium and a little sodium as well; so for anyone who started their day with a nice morning sweat, this green can provide some of the nutrients that you lost through getting nice and sweaty (click here for a simple do anywhere workout!).
