Pear Vanilla Green Smoothie


Contrary to how it may appear on my blog and Instagram, I do occasionally eat things that are healthy. However, I have a big aversion to eating something just because it’s healthy – it has to taste good, otherwise I’m not on board. So you can trust me when I tell you that this green smoothie is absolutely delicious – I eat it almost every day for lunch along with toast with peanut or almond butter.

Healthy Pear Vanilla Green Smoothie

(adapted from Deliciously Ella)


1 frozen banana

1 ripe pear, washed and cut into four slices

1 tablespoon almond butter

1 teaspoon honey

1 teaspoon vanilla powder (or a splash of pure vanilla extract)

3 tablespoons oats

Generous handful of baby spinach

3-4 ice cubes

1/2 cup almond milk – add more if you want a thinner consistency


Throw everything in your blender and blend away (this is the blender I use).

You don’t need to get too precise with measurements, just wing it. This is super yummy – you can’t taste the spinach at all and it mostly tastes of a sweet (but not too sweet), icy cold blend of pear, vanilla, and almond. It’s really filling as well. Enjoy!
