Amy Ip­politi’s grape­fruit-cu­cum­ber-chard shake


“This cit­rus shake is my go-to drink each morn­ing be­cause it’s easy to digest and has lots of re­plen­ish­ing nu­tri­ents. In fact, it gives me such a nat­u­ral en­ergy boost, I make it when­ever I feel tired. It’s also one of the first things I make af­ter trav­el­ing, be­cause I tend to get de­hy­drated af­ter long flights—and it can be tough to eat or­ganic, healthy, whole foods on the road.” 1 red or pink grape­fruit, peeled, seg­mented, and seeded (feel for any hard spots, and then use a but­ter knife or your fin­gers to re­move seeds) ½ or­ganic cu­cum­ber 1 cup red chard or spinach (about a hand­ful) ½ av­o­cado

In a blender, mix grape­fruit, cu­cum­ber, red chard, av­o­cado, 3 ice cubes, and ½ cup wa­ter un­til smooth (with as few flecks as pos­si­ble), 1–2 min­utes. NU­TRI­TIONAL INFO 88 calo­ries per serv­ing, 3 g fat (0 g sat­u­rated), 16 g carbs, 4 g fiber, 2 g pro­tein, 40 mg sodium
