Chocolate Pear Avocado Smoothie

Hey hey hello, and happy Monday!

I spent the past weekend in Boston and came home late Sunday evening to an almost empty kitchen. All I had was an avocado that I probably should have eaten last week, a can of pears, some coconut milk, dates, spinach, chia seeds, and my usual protein powder (and some tomatoes but those were not gonna find their way into a smoothie!)

I’m a huge fan of pear-chocolate things, and an avocado is always a good base for smoothies. Add in some dates, liquid, and spinach and chia seeds for that extra health boost and there you have it: a super healthy and yet tasty and filling morning smoothie!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 avocado 
  • 1 handful of fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup unsweetened iced green tea
  • 1/2 can of sweetened pears
  • 2-3 dates if extra sweetness desired
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 1 tbsp cocoa 
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds

Add to the blender, mix, and immediately serve! 

Have a great week everyone; my life is super busy at the moment but I am definitely trying to update this blog more often!
