Green Smoothie Recipe

Pear, Avocado and Spinach Smoothie

I’ve had this smoothie for breakfast the past couple of days and just had to share this one with you.

I have been making quite a few juices and smoothies of late, but have been aware that perhaps I haven’t been getting as much ‘green’ into them as perhaps I should be. When I first started out juicing and was on a very strict sugar free diet, pretty much all my juices used to be green. However, since then, I’ve got a little more adventurous and veered away from the green stuff a bit! I am making a conscious effort to have a more green in my juices and smoothies from here on in because, well, green juices are just so powerful when it comes to healing.

Chlorophyll (a green pigment present in all plants) is essential for energy production and so is perfect if you are healing or wanting more energy. It is known to promote healing, reduce inflammation and is a super potent antioxidant. So adding dark green veg and super-foods such as Spirulina or Green Barley Grass to your juices and smoothies is a great way to give your body and energy system a boost.

I hope you enjoy this lovely green smoothie recipe.

    Love to you and Emma can I use an ordinary blender as a juicer, but I guess not!!!

    Hi Susan

    You can use a normal blender to make smoothies (so the recipe in this blog post was made with a blender). But to make a juice – you need a juice extractor (juicer)

    If you think of it like this…..smoothies are just a load of ingredients all whizzed up together, and are therefore thicker. Juices are where the juice is squeezed out of the fruit or vegetable (by a juicer) and the solid fibrous stuff is disposed of – so more watery 🙂
