Apple Raspberry Green Smoothie

1/2 ripe avocado
3 apples
1 cup raspberries
3 cups purified water
1 bunch rainbow chard (approximately 5 large leaves)

Place all fruit (avocado is a fruit) into your high speed blender. Add water. Blend until smooth. With blender running add chard through the hole in the lid of your blender and continue to blend until smooth. Do not over blend or your smoothie will get warm.

Studies show that an “apple a day” really can help keep the doctor away. Don’t peel though. The pectin, found in the skin has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease and have stopping power against cancer. And raspberries are loaded with resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant thought to have anti aging properties as well as being a great defense against heart disease, cancer and other degenerative diseases.
