Each time I post a smoothie recipe I feel the need to reassure everyone that I am not a hard core green smoothie person. Yes, this smoothie looks thick and lush green. But no, I’m not really into kale (even though I probably *should* be) and I do.not.like beetroot in drinks. No thanks!
But I do enjoy the buzz that green smoothies give the body and I am becoming more and more in tune with when my body needs one and how it will help. So that’s good. This is a beauty if you are a newbie to green smoothies because it is just SO drinkable. It has 3 pieces of fruit so I guess that helps.
1 cup baby spinach leaves
1 ripe pear
1 green apple
1 peeled orange
1-2cm knob fresh ginger, peeled
1 handful fresh mint leaves
1 cup water
1/2 cup ice
Blend away. I tend to add the water in later because our blender works better with less liquid to purify the ingredients. But this will depend on what sort of machine you have.
Refreshing and zingy and perfectly drinkable! Enjoy!
