Whenever I don’t have a lot of time to make breakfast, I like to make quick fruit smoothies with either almond/cashew milk, coconut milk or coconut water. I had some fresh baby swiss chard in my fridge so I wanted to pair it with some fruits that I had on hand. I made this smoothie with some pineapple, orange, and raspberries. I like making smoothies with swiss chard, spinach or kale so that I can make sure to eat my greens for the day. Smoothies aren’t overly complicated to make; that’s why I like them. I’ve never seen fresh raspberries in Japan so I used some frozen one, but you could use fresh or frozen fruits, whatever you have on hand. I made this smoothie with some coconut water and I found it made enough for two portions. You could drink it all in one portion, but I like to drink it with something else on the side, so I’ll usually have half.
