I wanted a healthy green smoothie after my workout the other day and wanted to try something different than my normal banana and spinach protein smoothie. I had a pear and an avocado that needed to be used so I figured this was a great smoothie to make.
This recipe was adapted from here. I made a few changes from the original recipe.
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1 apple
- 1/2 pear
- 1/4 avocado
- 1 or 2 handfuls of spinach
- 1/2 – 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (optional)
- 1 tsp maca powder (optional)
- 1 tsp flaxseeds (optional)
Normally, well more like every single one of my smoothies, have 1/2 – 1 banana in it. Well I am so glad I tried something new! I absolutely loved the apple in this smoothie! I think I’m going to need to add apple to more smoothies. It’s better to add more of a variety of fruits anyway!
This recipe, with 1 scoop protein powder and all other optional ingredients, yields approximately 385 calories and 23g protein.
