six days of (green) smoothies: day six

it took six goes, but i have finally achieved a GREEN green smoothie. i had kind of stopped expecting it, to be honest, so this verdant little number was met with genuine surprise.



ingredients

1 cup spinach leaves
1 pear (cored, but unpeeled)
1 kiwi fruit (peeled)
1 banana
1 cup cold water


method
  • place all ingredients in blender, breaking the fruit pieces up as much as possible as you do
  • blend until smooth
  • you mat need to poke the fruit pieces down a little bit with a wooden spoon to achieve an even texture. turn the blender off before doing this.

this one was yummy, and has confirmed my suspicion that bananas are one of the key factors in making green smoothies essie-friendly. they make everything seem that bit sweeter and creamier, and pull things together into a more pleasing texture. i think they'll feature prominently in future blended adventures.
