pear & mint smoothie

packed with

Made correctly, with a good balance of fruit, vegetables and healthy fats a smoothie has the potential to be a satisfying breakfast keeping you full all the way to lunch. You can also make a batch of this and share it with family, house mates or anyone who will dare drink the ‘green stuff’ as a healthy shot of goodness.

I sometimes make smoothies the night before when I have a busy morning, apart from an occasional slight change in colour depending on the ingredients they keep really well and guarantee a good start to the day. Smoothies are really kind to your digestive system as essentially the blender has commenced a lot of the digesting for you, enjoy.
