Green Pear & Walnut Smoothie

This is a take on one of my favourite salads! I always love to add one type of fruit and one type of nut into my salads such as strawberries, mangoes, apples or pears with almonds, macadamias, walnuts or any other variety you desire, this gives it great flavour and texture and mixes it up and makes for a more interesting tasty salad or in this case a great smoothie.


Ingredients

  • 1-2 pears (depends on your sweet desire)
  • 1 celery stick
  • 1 large handful of baby spinach leaves
  • 1 cup (250 ml) of coconut water
  • 1 handful of ice
  • 1 handful of walnuts (about 2 tbsp)
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 tsp  honey (optional – I didn’t add this, the pear was sweet enough!)

Directions

  1. Wash produce and chop pears and celery.
  2. Place all ingredients in blender.
