Categories: not tried, smoothie


  • ◦1.5 c Mango Passionfruit 100% Juice Blend (from Trader Joe’s)
  • ◦1/2 c water
  • ◦1 c (loosly packed) raw swiss chard, chopped
  • ◦2 T cilantro, chopped
  • ◦1/2 banana
  • ◦1/4 avocado
  • ◦5 chunks of chopped mango (fresh or frozen)


  1. In a blender pour 1 cup of the mango juice with the chopped cilantro and swiss chard. Blend on high until the green leaves are blended to a liquid. (Depending on your blender quality there could still be some little pieces, but it should be mostly blended.)

  2. Turn off blender and add the banana, avocado and mango. Cover and blend again on high.

  3. Once all the smoothie starts to thicken add the last 1/2 cup of juice and 1/2 cup of water to thin the beverage. Blend one last time to incorporate.

  4. Enjoy!
