Start Your Holiday Off Right with a Fresh Green Smoothie




The holidays are upon us! Wishing you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Pleasant Festivus!

A great way to start your day off right before heading to family gatherings is with a green smoothie. It will put a lot of vitamins and minerals into your system and curb cravings for processed and sugary sweets.

Our realtor sent us a nice box of edibles for the holiday, which included a lot of pears, so that is the inspiration for this drink, which is sweet and refreshing.

I  made this in the Nina Pulse single serve cup, but you can make it in any blender.

Method:

Add coconut water, pear, and kale into the blender jar (or cup), and blend for about 20-30 seconds until combined. Then, add the pineapple chunks and coconut oil and blend until fully combined. Add a little more water if needed to thin.
