Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup white grape juice
  • 1/2 cup spinach
  • 1 small ripe bartlett or d’anjou pear quartered and cored*
  • 2-3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger root peeled and finely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp agave nectar optional
  • 10 ice cubes

Instructions

  • Add grape juice, spinach, pear, 2 tbsp lemon juice, ginger and vanilla to blender. Puree until smooth.
  • Taste. If smoothie isn’t sweet enough, add the agave nectar, (it all depends on the sweetness of your pear). For additional tartness, add the last tbsp lemon juice.
  • Add ice cubes and blend on high until smooth.
  • Divide smoothie between two juice glasses to serve.

Notes

*If you use a Vitamix to make this green drink, you do not need to peel the pear. Instead, leave the skin on for the benefit of additional fiber.
