I mentioned this in a previous blog post, but I am totally obsessed with this pineapple pear green smoothie.
I used to always think that smoothies HAD to have protein in them, because I when I drank them it would always be for meal replacement. However, I’m really, really loving just drinking these green smoothies as a snack or as a side with my breakfast or lunch. Vegetables are not exactly my favorite thing, so I love that green smoothies are packed full of nutrients and still taste like a treat.
Here’s what goes into this smoothie you see pictured:
- 5 or 6 ice cubes
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/2 cup chopped pineapple
- 1 pear (sliced with the core removed)
- large handful of fresh spinach/kale (your preference)
- 1/2 cup of orange juice
Any recommendations for other green smoothie recipes? I’m thinking I need to expand my horizons, considering this is pretty much the only one I’ve been drinking for the last year!
