Spinach and Pear Smoothie
A vibrant green smoothie packed with spinach, pear, ginger and dates. A great way to get your kids to eat their greens.
- 2 heaped handfuls of Spinach (around 60g)
- 2 small pears (255g)
- 4 small dates (26g)
- 1/2 tsp ginger puree.
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tbsp greek yoghurt (optional topping)
- 1 tbsp LSA mix (optional topping)
- 1/2 pear thinly sliced (optional topping)
Add the smoothie ingredients to a high speed blender and blitz until smooth. ** See note 1
(Serving suggestion) Pour the mixture into two bowls. Swirl in 1/2 tbsp of yoghurt to each bowl add 1/2 tbsp of LSA mix, top with thinly sliced pears.
Depending on the size of your blender you may have to add the spinach in stages. I added about a 1/4 of the spinach, blitzed it and then added the remaining spinach before blending again.
