Welcome to Bragança, my birth town.
This place is so beautiful with it’s picturesque castle and I medieval cobble stone streets. It’s a quite place that is pretty but provides incredible food to eat. Everything is fresh here from the meats to the dairy, from the fruits to the vegetables. It’s not rare for people to have their gardens full of of fresh produce and their gardens lined with fruit trees. the most common are apple, peach, plums, cherry, figs and pomegranate trees, oh yes and let me now forget the chestnut, walnut and almond trees!
As you know, I love my greens so at the local market I picked up some super fresh Swiss chard to blend a smoothie full of goodness. Luckily, the peaches and walnuts were donated by gracious friends who are always willing to share what they harvest, these friends I tell ya’melt my soul.
For this simple recipe you’ll need:
Blending in Bragança 1
3 cups of Swiss chard
2 cups peaches
1/4 cup of almonds
6 cups of water
It’s enough for a party of 6-7 healthy folks. Enjoy!
