Pineapple Parsnip Passion

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz swiss chard

  • 4 oz pineapple
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Parsnips are a starchy, high fiber, low calorie vegetable, making them a perfect base for a smoothie, and a great substitute for potatoes in many recipes. (This Thanksgiving, why not try a little parsnip puree instead of the usual mashed potatoes?) They’re also a good source of folate and vitamin C. Another great source of vitamin C is pineapple, which actually has more vitamin C per serving than an orange. Chia seeds are an excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids (which is great if you’re a vegan, or just not into fish oil), as well as fiber, magnesium and calcium. Swiss chard is one of the most nutrient dense greens out there, full of antioxidants, beta-carotene, and yes, even more vitamin C.
