YieldI'm guessing 2-4 servings depending on how much you like smoothies
Swiss Chard, 2 handfuls - washed
2½ Cucumber, Quartered
1 Large pear, Chopped
2 Yellow peaches, Pit removed and chopped
1 White peach, Pit removed and chopped
4 Majool Dates, Pitted and halved
¼ cup Water, Approximate
.125 cup Purslane (edible weed), Leaves only
In my blender I put the washed chard and water (just enough to cover the blades and get things moving really) and let’er rip. Then added the cucumber,pear and peaches and continued to blend.. then I added the purslane and dates and still continued the blending till smooth (or as smooth as my blender would get). It was a bit thick so I added a bit more H2O. It’s not very sweet and you might want to add a banana or a few more dates if you like smoothies on the sweet side. I was thinking of adding a pepper or some sumac to give it a savory flavor.. Feel free to add what you like.. I’d love to hear about the variations.

I used the cucumber to help with my BP which has been acting up and the purslane for the Omega-3 it has
