The Beginner’s Luck Green Smoothie Recipe


I am enjoying a wonderful week at my parent’s house! It’s so good for me to spend time with family and allow my daughter to get to know her grandparents better and her aunts, uncles, and cousins!

I wanted to share with you guys one of the many highlights from my trip. My parents have a garden in their backyard (I personally feel that it’s miracle that anything grows in the intense heat of Nevada), and every day we have been able to enjoy fresh organic red swiss chard and/or collard greens in a smoothie.

My mom has a Blendtec and I was so impressed with how well it juiced everything!  In less than a week I have become a smoothie believer and could finally understand why people could justify spending $500 for a blender. I never felt like I was drinking greens, but I was still able to enjoy the health benefits – Nice!  Lucky for me, my mom gave me her 13 year old Vitamix that she wasn’t using. I’m sure it’s not as good as the new ones, but my Vitamix works just fine! Because of this… I plan on sharing more smoothie recipes with all of you! :)
