Rainbow chard, green, nectarine, mango banana smoothie. What a name for a smoothie eh? I made this delicious bad boy after an impromptu trip to Whole Foods after exchangeable my shoes at Luke’s Locker. I needed some agave nectar and it just so happened, there was a Whole Foods right down the road. I ended up buying way more stuff than I intended to buy. Really the only thing I needed was the agave, but walked out with a canvas bag full of other stuff including a couple mangoes and some rainbow chard. I have used rainbow chard in past smoothies – it’s one of my favorite greens.
I have a feeling I am going to start eating a lot more mangoes since my roommate purchased the Titan peeler. This “As Seen on TV” kitchen utensil is seriously quite amazing! It only takes me seconds to peel one mango as opposed to minutes with a standard potato peeler. This will make dehydrating mangoes way easier too.
Anyway, without further or do, here is the Rainbow Green Monster Smoothie. I just renamed it on the spot; sounds much better huh?
- I ripe mango
- 1 ripe nectarine
- 1 ripe banana
- 2-4 TBSP of agave nectar
- 6 cubes of ice
- 3/4 – 1 cup of almond milk
- 1 giant rainbow chard leaf
Directions: blend that stuff up
