Ingredients

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

Instructions

  1. Add grape juice, spinach, pear, 2 tbsp lemon juice, ginger and vanilla to blender. Puree until smooth.
  2. 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.
  3. Add ice cubes and blend on high until smooth.
  4. Divide smoothie between two juice glasses to serve.
