Rainbow Chard Milkshake

Milkshakes make me believe in magic. And green milkshakes are my new obsession.   Delectable, creamy, easy, & packed with nutrition, I wouldn’t want to start my day any other way.

Creamy, delicious, vegan, gluten free, & packed with protein & green goodness

Ingredients:

  • 1 TBSP raw shelled hemp seeds
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 3 pieces rainbow chard (stalk & leaves)
  • 1 heaping TBSP almond butter
  • 8 frozen strawberries
  • 1 1/4 cup of your choice of milk (unsweetened vanilla almond & Califia’s toasted coconut almond milk worked fabulously )

Directions:

Throw everything into a high-powered blender.  Blend well & ENJOY!

Note:  For not so high-powered blenders- blend the chard, milk, and seeds very well first.  Then add the almond butter and strawberries, stopping to scrape down the sides of the blender/stir ingredients as needed.

During the *sometimes crazy* Holiday Season, don’t forget to take care of yourself.

Here are a few ideas:

  1. Blend some dark leafy greens into your smoothies & shakes- spinach, swiss or rainbow chard, kale (Several more recipes coming soon…)
  2. Everyday, spend 5 minutes sitting quietly/meditating/breathing
  3. Take a 20 minute walk on your lunch break
  4. Take 10 deep, slow breaths when you’re stuck in traffic
  5. Ask for help when you need it
  6.  Don’t go shopping when you’re hungry

XO,

Hali
