Lean Green Smoothie


I've been sick all week, I've had a nasty cold.  Thankfully I started feeling better today. In the past 48 hours I've only worn pajamas, been in bed, slept for almost 40 of those hours and watched 3 pretty terrible chick flicks.  The only saving grace was Chris bringing a endless supply of soup, DayQuil and Nyquil.  Oh, and snuggling with my puppy, he never left my side.  That was a bonus :)

I knew I was feeling better when only 8 hours of sleep was sufficient and I was motivated to shower and put on some yoga pants to run a few errands.  This included a stop at the farmers market to load up on fruit and veggies because I had a recipe in mind I really wanted to try. While I was sick in bed, I caught up on reading some of my favorite blogs. Camille Styles is a fashion, food, entertaining, overall chic blog that is always inspiring.  I highly recommended you check out what Camille and her team come up with.   She recently posted a recipe for a smoothie that sounded fresh, healthy and full of vitamins.  After a weekend of bacon cornbread, it was exactly everything I needed! 

True to it's green name, this smoothie is nutrient packed and delicious.  It is loaded with a fresh spinach, which I have never included in my smoothies before. (I don't know why, but I think I always will now).  The highlight of the smoothie is the fresh pineapple which is complemented by ripe pear, fresh cucumber and mint.  A little bit of agave nectar adds a touch of sweetness.  Make this!!

Ingredients

1/2 of a pineapple, peeled, cored and chopped
1 cucumber, peeled and chopped
1 ripe pear, peeled, cored and chopped
juice from 1 lime
1 cup baby spinach leaves
10 mint leaves, chopped
1 tsp agave nectar
1 tsp of chia seeds 
crushed ice


Update!! I recently made this smoothie with a peach (peeled) instead of a pear and it was excellent!!!  (And I omitted the line and mint... still tasted great!)

Method

Purée ingredients in a blender until smooth.  Pour into 2 glasses, garnish with a cucumber spear and serve.

 Enjoy!

  21. This recipe will definitely help in cold and flu but there is fruit juice which known to fight cold and cough and that is pineapple juice. We strongly recommend you to consume pineapple juice and the brand we use if Chivita juices which is nigerian brand and as per my knowledge they only serve in nigeria only. So if you hail from ng you can give it a try - Pineapple juice
