    1.Wash the chard leaves well in several changes of water to remove all dirt. If you have time flash steam the greens (to soften the fibers) by placing it in a steamer over rapidly boiling water (1 minute for chard, 2 minutes for kale.) Make sure the water is boiling before you add the greens. Steam leaves just until it becomes bright green in color as a dark green color or strong smell of chard or kale means that is overcooking and losing vitamins. 2. Using a blender, food processor or mini blender, blend the greens with 1/4 cup of the water used for steaming (advisable to cool the water first). Add the rest of the ingredients and blend for about a minute until smooth. 3. Drink right away or place next to your nursing chair to sip while nourishing your babe or store in the fridge for about 4 hours. Makes about 2 and 1/2 cups.
