Forelle Pear Green Smoothie

I could bet that today, four days after New Year’s, millions of people are starting their day off with a green smoothie of some sort.  Green smoothies are always associated with cleanses or detox or optimal health, but you know what, they can also be darn delicious.  Today I am sharing a very kid-friendly green smoothie that is sweet and fruity, and although green, no weird flavours here.

I used forelle pears for this smoothie, as they are cute and adorable and bite-size.  Okay fine, not only because of that, also they are quite sweet and have a bit of a cinammon spice flavour making them perfect for kid-friendly snacks or smoothies.  This variety is only available from about September until December.  I call this smoothie my winter blend; because of the pear variety and also because it’s not a freezing cold drink.  If you want to make it colder, go ahead and add a few ice cubes.

This smoothie is so easy to whip up and makes for a great addition to your healthy eating goals.  Let’s get blending.
