Kumquat Tart Smoothie Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz swiss chard
  • 1 pear - chopped
  • 4 oz pineapple
  • 2 oz kumquats
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

The combination of vitamins and antioxidants fighting against wrinkles and other signs of aging in kumquats make them great for skin health, and because their peel is edible, they can be thrown in the blender whole. Hemp seeds have a great 3:1 balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and are often called a “perfect protein.” They also have a good serving of soluble fiber; a big help to digestion. This low calorie, low carb, nutrient-dense smoothie is the perfect treat for when you’re craving something sweet, but don’t want to fill your day with processed sugar.
