Orange Nectarine Dream Smoothie Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz swiss chard
  • 1 nectarine - pitted
  • 1 orange - peeled
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp lucuma powder
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

A fresh, low calorie alternative to orange juice, this smoothie is bursting with both vitamin C and beta carotene (thanks to a nectarine and orange), and healthy fat, protein and fiber from chia seeds. Lucuma, a Peruvian superfruit, often acts as a low-glycemic sweetener, and provides a serving of zinc and iron as well. Add in some vitamin K and more iron from swiss chard, and you have a totally refreshing snack that will keep you satisfied for hours!
