It's hard to get Greens in the Winter

Greens are so good for you and so hard to find in the winter, I mean, if you're trying to eat local stuff that actually still has some nutritional value to it.  I usually blanche and freeze spinach for dishes in the winter and that helps to get those Winter greens.  This year, I am trying something new.  I blended Kale and Chard with some water and froze it in ice cube trays.  I am figuring, come January, when  our bodies are desperate for anything green and fresh-ish, I can pop a cube into a smoothie and voila: green nutrition!!  It might even taste good!
