Pear-Kiwi Monster Smoothie

I was craving something, something sweet and delicious.  I thought about making cookies or just eating some chocolate chips with peanut butter.  But I knew I shouldn't because I have been actually doing really well about putting healthy things into my body, so why go and ruin that.  So I took some inventory of the things around my kitchen and came up with a fabulous smoothie.  Pear sounded so weird to put in a smoothie but I have seen some other recipes that called for pear so I thought I would give it a try.

1 ripe pear (cored)
1 kiwi
1 clementine (cutie, I love that name)
2 cups spinach (mine was frozen but fresh is fine too)
2 T lemon juice
1 T ground flax seeds
1/2 cup water
a couple of ice cubes if you like it super cold

I was so pleasantly surprised at how delicious this was! Go Veggie Monster.  Hopefully that was just the pick-me-up that I needed.


  1. Oh you are so disciplined resisting making cookies for a healthy smoothie :) I will have to try your smoothie, esp with the addition of sprinach leaves which is new to me.

    1. Thanks for stopping by my little blog Shaheen. Don't let me fool you I am really not that disciplined. I just happened to be on that particular day lol. Spinach in smoothies is a really good way to increase your intake of vitamins and nutrients and you can't even taste it. Hope you liked it :)
