So, I follow a lot of food blogs, most of them are vegan, but at the very least, they're healthy. And I've noticed lately, that a lot of people have started drinking "Green smoothies" every morning. Where it's basically a smoothie, but they also include vegetables, and usually greens. Whenever I see a photo or a recipe of one, they always sound so good. But I've tried making them, and really, when I drink it I'm kind of thinking "This could really use a LOT more fruit. Some sugar would help too." But I'd still like to like them. They sound good, they look good (most of the time), and they're usually very healthy. So I figured I could start trying for it, but just take baby steps. So when I feel like having a smoothie, or in the morning when I'm kind of hungry, but don't really want something big, I'll have my all strawberry smoothie, but add a few leaves from my chard plant into it. So far I can only really handle about 2-3 smallish or smallish-medium leaves. But even baby steps are good. :)
I think the strawberries are a good idea, they keep the color about the same, the taste about the same, and they're nice and sweet, to keep the bitter chard from making my smoothie bitter.
