Uber Greens Smoothie

Yes, I really do put greens in/on my greens and yes, I really love them!

Honestly though, even my husband who does not eat like I do (not totally unhealthy but he’s not the health-freak I am) – even that guy could hardly taste the greens in this one even though it is chock full of them!

No sweeteners needed or added beyond that already in the banana and powder. Flex this recipe as you need to based on what you have on hand.

Either way, ENJOY!!!

  • High Speed Blender (Vitamix still has my top vote on this one!)


  • 1 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk or dairy-free milk substitute of your choosing
  • 1 bunch Rainbow Swiss Chard
  • 1 scoop Garden of Life Raw Meal chocolate or vanilla
  • 1 tbsp Raw Cacao Nibs or cacao powder
  • 1 tsp Spirulina
  • 1 tsp Amazing Grass Greens & Shrooms Powder
  • 1 Banana
  • 4 Ice Cubes


  • Combine all ingredients in blend and blend until smooth.
  • Serve Immediately.


I find that greens tend to take a little longer to clear my stomach than just plain fruit, even in smoothies.  With that in mind, be sure to grab this one maybe 2-3 hours before a high intensity or cardio workout.  
Major “Pro” on this one: Chard is in the same family as beets AND is high in nitrates, which are converted directly into nitric oxide in the body. Research shows regular intake of leafy greens maintains optimal nitric oxide levels and reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease.  These have been proven to boost your training.  I know adding these into my diet before a workout always boost my training significantly!
Final note, even if you consume dairy, you won’t likely want to put it in this one if using it for pre-training fuel as dairy can do a number on the stomach and makes some people sick as body temps rise.
