Pomaveggie Spinach Breakfast Smoothie

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?

fleshy smoothie?

Gross, no.

So I looked it up. Apples and pears are part of the pome family of fruits. Hence!

Apple-Pear-Spinach Breakfast Smoothie

Pomaveggie Spinach Breakfast Smoothie (a.k.a. Swamp Thing)

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions
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.
