Beet my nana smoothie

I’ve just made a “Beet my nana smoothie” from the Rawlicious recipe book. It’s the first time I’ve bought any silver beet, and this has been an excellent way to use it as the smoothie tastes sweet and I’m sure it’s healthy. The very ripe bananas probably contributed to the sweetness.
I have the impression that most people prefer to cook silver beet rather than eating it raw, so I googled the question and found the answer at Wiki: Fresh young chard can be used raw in salads. Mature chard leaves and stalks are typically cooked or sauteed; their bitterness fades with cooking…
Other sites suggest that silver beet can be shredded and added raw to salads. I haven’t noticed any bitter taste so the silver beet smoothie worked for me.
