Berry Green Smoothie

I've been eagerly anticipating making a smoothie ever since I planted my Swiss chard 2 months ago.
Don't let the color scare you - be brave and give it a try!! 
It's so refreshing, especially if you use frozen fruit.  The secret is the banana - it cuts the taste of the greens.  It's a wonderful way to get in your daily quota of fruits and veggies!

3 leaves Swiss chard (my fav) or 2 handfuls of spinach
1 very ripe banana, frozen
a handful of  fresh or frozen strawberries, blueberries or red raspberries
enough water to thin to your liking

Simply blend the above ingredients in your blender.  Add additional water to thin if necessary.
