This Energy Boosting Smoothie is the perfect start to a busy day, providing you with steady, even energy without the crash!  The Swiss chard and spinach are packed with iron to deliver oxygen throughout your body, and the matcha contains ECGC, an anticancer nutrient.  This Energy Boosting Smoothie is also banana and avocado free, making it a fresh way to drink your greens.  Dates provide sweetness, but are low glycemic, meaning they won’t give you a sugar high.  Cheers!
