How To Make Pear, Arugula And Avocado Green Smoothie?
Pear Arugula And Avocado Green Smoothie is a nutrition packed vegan green smoothie. Breakfast Recipes.
Pear Arugula and Avocado Green smoothie is an unusual yet delicious way to make a smoothie. I recently found some gorgeous Arugula greens in my local market. I did use them in a salad but i had a small bunch leftover after i was done with the salad. And then, a lonely Anjou pear and a very ripe avocado was sitting there and staring at me from the fridge. This made me quite uncomfortable and so i decided to join the green smoothie bandwagon by blitzing up this filling, flavor packed and nutritious Pear Arugula and Avocado Green Smoothie.

To begin with, this smoothie is vegan and does not have any banana. Yes, you heard me right! Not every smoothie has to have banana. And it doesn’t have Kale either. That s another green smoothie myth busted. My Pear arugula and avocado green smoothie gets the green from the arugula, the body from the avocado, the fibre and sweetness from the pear and the almost liquid consistency from tender coconut water. I added a dash of lime juice to add some zest and also to help maintain the green color of the smoothie. You can make this Pear Arugula and Avocado green smoothie the day before and chill it. It will be all nice and ready the next morning to gulp down for breakfast. The combinations and permutations to make this healthy Pear Arugula and Avocado green smoothie are endless. You can use an orange in place of the lime. A regular lemon will work too. Almost any pear except the Asian pear will work in this smoothie. Also, if you insist, then you can add kale instead of Arugula. But believe me, the arugula does wonders to this green smoothie. You can also make this into a smoothie bowl because the smoothie as such can be scooped and eaten with a spoon. Psst… i made this Pear arugula and avocado green smoothie in my new food processor and it turned out super awesome in terms of consistency!
