The red chard in this smoothie imparts a pretty strong, earthy flavor; if you prefer a milder tasting beverage, feel free to use just the leaves of the chard (I included the stalks) or substitute a milder green leafy vegetable such as spinach.

makes 2 medium-sized servings
1 cup mango (I used frozen chunks)
2 mandarin oranges
1-2 handfuls red chard
1/4 cup water
2 ice cubes

Combine all ingredients in blender and process until smooth.
