Happy Fridaaaay!! No, I haven’t had one too many mason jars of cold brew coffee. I’m just excited because Alyssa and I are going on a little road trip this weekend. We’re headed to Charlotte, NC to celebrate this lovely lady and her coming bundle of joy. Can’t wait!
Before I head out I wanted to pop in and share a new pear smoothie recipe that I’ve been hooked on lately.
It’s packed with lots of green — fresh pear, spinach, avocado and mint — and blended into creamy perfection.
For whatever reason I rarely buy pears. I think it’s because they can sometimes be a little mealy (a texture I despise), but they’re actually really, really good in smoothies. If you haven’t tried adding pears to your smoothies, I highly recommend trying it. The same goes for avocado in smoothies — sounds a little strange but it adds such a creamy texture and lots of healthy fat!
Back to the power punch pear smoothie… it’s creamy, hydrating and perfect for summer. I made the full recipe on Thursday afternoon and drank one smoothie as a mid-afternoon snack and saved the other one for breakfast today. I topped it with a little granola and ate it with a spoon. So good!
