Smoothies are possibly my favourite 'everyday' breakfast. I'd love to have pancakes everyday (who wouldn't?!), but they take forever to prepare and make me feel a little groggy. I find that a good smoothie with a cup of lemon and ginger tea is the perfect remedy for turning a grumpy morning Steph into somebody who is actually a functional human being. I love experimenting with smoothie recipes, but usually end up coming back to the same basics that involve berries and salad. The recipe I have for you guys today however veers a little off of my beaten track, and is totally berry free *cue shocked face*. It's a completely green smoothie, but still contains a lot of fruit, so you can drink something sweet whilst all of your friends stare in envy at your green goddess smoothie Instagram posts

I love how quick and simple smoothies are for when you need to make breakfast in a rush. You can even chop everything up the night before and put it in the fridge, so that all you have to do in the morning is drop everything into your blender and hit the power button. I've actually posted a TONNE of smoothie recipes here on Nourish ME, but not in the past few months. If you're looking for more smoothie inspiration, here are just a couple more of my recipes:

- Mango vegan smoothie
- Strawberry and basil smoothie (this is one of my all time favourites!)
- Antioxidant green smoothie


So, without further ado, here's how to make a yummy kiwi and pear smoothie:

Ingredients:

1 kiwi
1 conference pear
1 large handful baby spinach
3 romaine lettuce leaves, or about 2 handfuls
1 small apple
150ml rice (or other alternative, e.g. almond, oat) milk

Method:

1.) Chop the kiwi, pear, apple and romaine lettuce up into small pieces.
2.) Place everything in the blender and whizz for a few minutes!

  1. I'm not a huge smoothie person, I REALLY have to be in the mood for one - but this one sounds really good - refreshing and not too heavy! Idk if you're into juicing, but if you are, carrot-apple-lemon-ginger is a great one!
