Naming my spinach breakfast smoothie this morning was difficult.
When you make a smoothie with several berries, you have a “berry” smoothie. When you make a smoothie with oranges and grapefruit, you have a “citrus” smoothie. When you make a smoothie with peanut butter… well… you get the idea.
What do you have when you make a smoothie with apples and pears?
A fleshy smoothie?
So I looked it up. Apples and pears are part of the pome family of fruits. Hence!
Pomaveggie Spinach Breakfast Smoothie (a.k.a. Swamp Thing)
- 1 handful organic spinach, chopped
- 1 organic apple, peeled
- 1 organic pear, peeled
- 3 organic broccoli florets, stems removed
- 1 cup organic orange-carrot juice
- 1 spoonful-ish ground flax seed
Blend and enjoy what I describe as nearly-the-same taste and texture of applesauce!
I searched the grocery store for carrot juice. I don’t have a juicer, and carrots don’t really… blend. Couldn’t find simple carrot juice without fruit in it so orange-carrot juice it is.
I can only do so much.
However, the next time I have to peel apples and pears, I’m doing this.
