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.
- 1 cup plain almond milk
- 1 cup baby spinach
- 1 forelle pear (or any small pear will do)
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/2 a small apple (I used gala)
- 1 medjool date, pitted
- Add all of the ingredients into your blender and blend at high speed until smooth.
I hope you all have a relaxing Sunday and if you aren’t already obsessed with Instagram, come join the fun. Follow me here! 🙂
