Banana Pear Green Smoothie

21 Jan

Our new blender is amazing! We had to purchase a new one because sadly broke our second blender. I think it’s because we’re either a.) constantly using it and they can’t handle the intensity or b.) we have awful luck with blenders. Either way, we decided it would be a smart decision to invest in a durable one. We REALLY wanted a Vita-mix, but they are obviously out of our price range. So we opted for the Oster Versa blender. This baby is high speed, high tech, and has a 7 year guaranteed warrantee. We knew it would be a good blender if it was backed with that kinda warranty. So after shopping around we ended up buying it! So thankful we did, because we were going through smoothie withdrawal until it arrived in the mail. Now that it’s in our possession we’ve gotten some crazy smoothie inspiration. So here’s our newest take on the green smoothie fad.

Ingredients:
1 pear
1 frozen banana
1 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tablespoon ground flax (can omit)
1 cup spinach
1 large handful of kale
12 ice cubes

Directions:
1. Add everything to blender and blend.

Such a bold green color. This shows just how many great nutrients are packed into this smoothie! Enjoy this smoothie as a snack or for your morning breakfast! It would be great paired with an egg white omelet or hot bowl of oatmeal.
