Coconut Pear Green Smoothie

Image

If you’re always on the go, looking to add more greens and vegetables to your diet or just looking for a scrumptious way to start your day, then this smoothie is for you.

Smoothie Tip #1: Prepare your ingredients the night before. Put everything except water & ice in the blender, then store in the fridge. In the morning, all you do is put the blender on the base, add W&I, blend and go.
Smoothie Tip #2: Make 2 portions; 1.5 for breakfast and the other .5 for a snack later that day. Kill two birds with one stone. Boom.
Smoothie Tip #3: If you or someone you know is just beginning to delve into the world of real food, adding in more vegetables to your daily intake or have kids/husband/wife that you’re trying to encourage to eat more vegetables & greens, smoothies is a GREAT way to do it. However, depending on where you’re starting from, you might want to start using this smoothie with an added kiwi to sweeten the flavor. Ideally, one sweeter fruit to 2-3 vegetable servings is my goal when concocting smoothie recipes.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 pear, sliced
  • ¼ cup each of: dried, shredded & unsweetened coconut, oats + hemp seeds
  • ½ avocado
  • Handful parsley leaves, stems discarded
  •  1/2 cucumber
  • 3 leaves of kale, stems discarded & leaves ripped
  • ¼ to ½ cup water – enough to blend to desired consistency
  • 5-7 ice cubes

DIRECTIONS: Prepare ingredients in your blender the night before. In the AM, add water and ice. Puree or liquefy until smooth. Add ice and any more water if needed until you have your ideal blend. This smoothie will have a creamy texture because of the avocado.
*As always, if you have questions, please ask!
