Apple, Pear & Ginger Smoothie

This outrageously green apple, pear and ginger smoothie is refreshing and rejuvenating any time of day.

Apple, Pear & Ginger Smoothie

So it would seem that pear and ginger are the flavour of the month. Or flavour of the month for me, at least. This time I have whizzed the tasty duo into a smoothie, and apple has joined the party, oh and spinach has tagged along too.

I have been guzzling this outrageously green concoction like nobodies business, it’s so yummy and refreshing! Last Saturday I ran in my first race post-baby (and survived, no less!). By the afternoon I was hungry and depleted, a quick raid of the fridge yielded these beautiful ripe autumn fruits, and a neglected nub of ginger. A minute later, I was a new woman. This is a wonderfully replenishing and rejuvenating smoothie. I love it in the morning to wake me up, or in the afternoon to give me a little boost.

    This looks a lot like a pear/ lemon/ ginger/ parsley/ bee pollen smoothie I was guzzling down all the time before I got turned off of green things. Maybe I’m almost ready to try a green smoothie again, because this certainly looks appealing and I’ve got practically everything on hand already!

    ginger is SUCH a necessary and delicious addition to a smoothie. I haven’t had many pears yet this year because i find that they bruise so quickly, so maybe adding them to a smoothie is the way to go 🙂

    This looks like a great green smoothie for my afternoon slump. Maybe it will keep me from eating some other junk! Love your site. Your photos are beautiful.

      Thanks! Yes if you have the will power to whip up a smoothie instead of grabbing some chocolate… its a great pick me up!

    Your pictures are beautiful! I put pear in my juice the other day and it was a great switch up from my usual apple… I’ll have to do both apple and pear next time though!
