Casanova Smoothie - an easy green drink
Prevent your screen from going dark
This lovely and light "green drink" is made with layers of aphrodisiac ingredients, including invigorating ginger plus a nutrition boost from fresh spinach.
Diet and Health
white grape juice
small ripe bartlett or d’anjou pear
quartered and cored*
fresh ginger root
peeled and finely chopped
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.
*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.
