Like the “little black dress” this basic smoothie can be dressed up by adding a few “accessories”. Not in the mood for pineapple? No problem, use blueberries, or apple, or peach, or mango or … you get the idea. No chard in the fridge? No worries. Use spinach, or kale, or romaine or … Just remember, the nutritionals listed below are for the specific ingredients listed. But seriously, even if the calorie count goes up a little, it won’t be a big deal.
