Ginger Pear Green Smoothie


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 large ripe pears, weighing about 1 pound
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 8 stalks lacinato kale, (also known as black or Tuscan kale) weighing 4 ounces
  • 1 small piece of ginger, about 1” x 1″ weighing 1/2 ounce
  • 116 ounce bottle of kombucha, citrus flavor
  • Optional: 1/2 – 1 cup water to thin the smoothie after blending

Instructions

  1. Quarter and core the pears before adding them to a blender. Peel the bananas and break them into quarters as you add them to the blender.
  2. Next remove the stems from the kale, and add them along with the ginger and the kombucha to the blender as well.
  3. Blend starting on a low speed and working up to high, blend until completely smooth. This takes about 1 minute in my Vitamix.
  4. After blending, you may want to add a bit of water depending on how thick you like your smoothies.
  5. Pour into containers and enjoy!
  6. If you’d like to keep the smoothie for a few hours, place it in the refrigerator, but be sure to drink it relatively quickly (within the day) because green smoothies don’t taste as good the longer they sit.
