What I'm drinking

Thoroughly enjoying tonight's dessert smoothie. It contains:
  • 1 cup of whey (I strained a recent batch of yogurt to make yogurt "cheese" and saved the liquid whey)
  • 4 raw swiss chard leaves (with stalks!) from our miniature chard jungle in the garden
  • some fresh mint leaves, the big ugly ones from the bottom of the stems
  • a 3-inch chunk of frozen banana
  • 5 frozen strawberries
  • cinnamon - maybe a half teaspoon?
It is a lovely smoothie. Bright green. Minty, tangy, velvety, with a hint of strawberry sweetness.
