Chard, Lime, and Mint Smoothies

Chard, Lime, and Mint Smoothies

Tender Swiss chard breaks down easily in a regular blender for smoothies that need no straining. Since red chard veins can bleed color, choose green chard to keep the verdant hue. Reserve chard stems for another use.

  • 1 packed cup 1/2-inch cubes honeydew melon (51/2 oz.)
  • 1/2 cup lime-flavored club soda
  • 1/4 cup packed chopped fresh mint
  • 3 Tbs. vanilla soy-, almond, or rice milk, optional
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 3 Tbs. fresh lime juice
  • 1 3-oz. extra-ripe kiwifruit, halved, flesh scooped out with spoon
  • 2 cups packed Swiss chard, stemmed and sliced into 1/2-inch-thick strips


Place all ingredients in blender in order listed. Blend 15 to 20 seconds, or until smoothie is thick, adding more lime juice if desired. Chill well, and whisk before serving, or pour over ice, and serve immediately.
