Citrus Rhubarb

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz swiss chard
  • 4 oz cantaloupe
  • 1 pear - chopped
  • 2 oz rhubarb - chopped
  • 1 lime - peeled
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Rhubarb (which many believe is a fruit but is actually classified as a vegetable) is a warm weather staple, and is full of fiber, vitamin K and calcium. Combining its slightly tangy taste with a lime (vitamin C), pear (fiber) and cantaloupe (magnesium and B vitamins) results in a sweet/tart smoothie base. Chia seeds and swiss chard add even more vitamins, fiber and healthy fats, which means that this light drink will help keep you energized and satisfied all day long.
