Pear & Lettuce Smoothie

This week, I have a green pear smoothie recipe for you. This week’s fruit box had some delicious juicy pears, so I used three of those along with some freshly cut lettuce from my vegetable garden. This smoothie is packed with nutrients, vitamins, full of goodness, great for any time of the day.

Ingredients for pear & lettuce smoothie

What’s inside

The main ingredients for this green pear smoothie are pears and lettuce. I use three pears with the skin on, I just give them a good wash, cut them into four and remove any seeds. At the minute, I have loads of romaine lettuce growing in my garden, so I just cut one of those, give it good wash and cut it into three so it fits in my blender. You could any kind of lettuce that you like and you have in your fridge.

I also like to add some orange for some extra fruity flavour and vitamin C and some basil leaves as they make the smoothie very refreshing. Finally, I add half a cup of almond milk and some ice cubes as we need something liquid in to get everything blended well and I love the taste of almond milk in my smoothies. If you don’t like almond milk or you have an allergy, you could substitute it with any type of milk that you like.

Storage

You could store it in the fridge for the next day in an airtight bottle or glass. I do recommend though to drink it as soon as you blend it as fruits will lose some of their nutritional value.
