Apple, Pear, Avocado and Spinach Smoothie

January 11th, 2013

 

The combination ofΒ apple, pear, avocado and spinach might sound a little strange, but together these four beautiful ingredients create an amazing blend of flavours, with the apple and pear sweetening the veggies. I think the avocado initially puts some people off – I guess maybe it sounds like a weird smoothie ingredient – but as you all know I use avocado in everything!

Makes 1 large glass

– 2 red apples (they’re sweeter than green)

– 1 pear

– 1 small avocado

– a large handful of fresh spinach leaves (35g)

Optional – I always add all of these but they’re not essential

– 1 teaspoon of manuka honey

– 1 teaspoon of hemp protein

– 1 teaspoon of chia seeds

– 1 teaspoon of flax seeds

Simply juice the apples and pear, then add the juice to your blender along with the avocado fresh, spinach leaves and any of the extras that you want. Then blend until smooth. Pour, sip and love. This is going to make you feel beautiful!
