Spinach Kale and Pear Smoothie

Green drink!
Are you in, loves?
My last attempt at a green smoothie wasn’t exactly what I hoped for.
So, I picked myself up and found some more green inspiration.
Kale. Spinach. Pear. YUM.
This smoothie looks very green, but you don’t actually taste any of the green stuff.  All I really tasted was the pear and banana- how crazy is that?  This drink is packed with some serious nutrition and is the most beautiful green color.  If you can get past the idea of drinking vegetables, you should give this one a try.
And, believe it or not, my spunky little one-year-old could not get enough of this smoothie.  He literally drank six ounces without breaking a sweat.  I’m pretty sure he’s the only baby on the block drinking kale smoothies.. maybe I should ask around?
Look at that little baby hand reaching up for his smoothie!
Adorable.
Try the green drink!

    what kind of blender do you have that can process the spinch, and especially the kale, enough to make it smoth?

    This looks fabulous and I can’t wait to try it. So it doesn’t have the bitterness of raw kale?! I may throw in some strawberries, too. Seriously can’t wait.

  3. I make a very similar smoothy almost every morning. My husband and I LOVE it!

    I havent tried putting kale in a smoothy yet I always use spinach and add a couple cauliflour florettes and some frozen black, blue and raspberries. Then I do half milk half V8 fusion juice. The berries really make it a much more appealing purplish color and you really cant taste the spinach at all even without adding any sweetner!

    we have been on a hue smoothie kick lately by having 1 every day for breakfast. I have been throwing spinach in recently too but I never thought about pear too. That combo sounds great

    I would actually be willing to try this smoothie. I would just have to try yours and not your own, because I would not want to waste all the ingredients if i did not like it! lol

    Thanks for your comment on my most recent TDY post. I appreciate it. Love you too! 🙂
