While the rest of the country might be getting ready to put on their fall coats and boots, in San Francisco, we are getting our Indian Summer…the temperature have been in the 80s, reaching up to mid 90s during parts of the day. So I’ve been craving a lot of liquids, especially green juices.

I want to share a great juice recipe based on Jamba Juice’s Tropical Greens™. The original recipe has too much fructose (each serving has 28 grams of sugar). So I tweaked the recipe a bit to make it more guilt-free.

  • Coconut water (1/2 cup)
  • Fresh pineapples (1 cup)
  • Organic red and green chard (2 cups)- you can also substitute it with spinach
  • Ice (~1 cup)
  • Chia Seeds (1 tablespoon)-optional

Blend all together until smooth and enjoy!
