Carrots and chard are chock-full of vitamin A, which is important for healthy eyes and skin. Pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain, which helps prevent bloating and is great for post-workout recovery. Chia adds protein and healthy fats.
3 cups Swiss or red chard
1 ½ carrots, cut into chunks (You can lightly steam the carrots to make a creamier smoothie)
3 cups water
1 cup almond milk (I used lactose free milk at my sister’s - it came out good!)
3 cups (375 mL) pineapple
3 tablespoons chia seeds
5 scoops of collagen powder (at least 20 grams of protein)
1. Place chard, carrots, and water in a blender. Blend until smooth.
2. Add remaining ingredients and blend again. I used frozen pineapple to make the smoothie cold, or you can serve over ice.
