Fresh Fig-Peach-Banana-Chard Smoothie
My neighbour came over with a bag of peaches (in exchange for watching her yard a bit while she is away), and I froze a bunch of those slices for smoothies. Then, when we went into her yard we noticed that her fig tree was drooping with lots of figs, screaming "harvest me! harvest me!" So, we did of course. These are figs far superior to whatever our fig type is. Two owners back the couple were Mediterranean (he was Greek, she was Italian, or maybe the reverse) but they had figs and peaches all over the surface of their house, a huge grape arbour in the back, and a persimmon tree. The persimmon and the figs got routed out by the next owner who preferred asphalt RV pads to ripe fruit. The present homeowner likes the peaches, but I'm not sure about the figs. I'll make her some jam with them, anyhow.
So, if you have all of the above ingredients, here you go: (or feel free to do your own version)
*1 frozen Banana
*2 fresh Figs
*2 fresh Rainbow Chard leaves and stems
*1/2 C. frozen Peach slices
*1-2C. filtered Water
Spin it all up in the blender!
And if you are rather apprehensive about combining all the fruits above together, believing that such a fruit salad mix might be harder to digest than just one or maybe 2 fruits, read THIS article by someone who has been a fruitarian-hygienist type raw vegan foodie and has done lots of research into the matter!
