Pear Avocado Kale Smoothie #detox #greensmoothie #recipe

Chances are, if you’ve been detoxing since Jan 1, you’re either feeling pretty zenful yourself, or you’re crabby patty McGee, tempted to throw elbows at innocent passers by as your body comes down off its holiday sugar high.

Keep at it, my dear. Your place will be a place of zen once it finds balance without carbs. Replace brownies with bananas, alcohol with kombucha, and bread with sweet potatoes <- recipe for success. 

We’re on Day 4 of detox drinks on The Roasted Root, and this Pear Avocado Ginger Kale Smoothie is cuh-reamy!  

This smoothie came straight from my cookbook, Let Them Eat Kale!. I tweaked the recipe just a tad to make it even more New Years Resolution-friendly. It’s thick and sweet, with a nice little ginger kicker in the back end.

The kale + avocado+ ginger combination gives you a vitamin and antioxidant infusion. Plus, pears?! I always thought pears were best wrapped in bacon, but it turns out, they’re awesome in smoothies, too. If you’re being conscious of calories, do note that this is a high-calorie smoothie, so you can use it as a meal-replacer.

I knew you had to have some fabulous kind of kale smoothie waiting for us...and I was right! Love that the pear adds all sorts of natural sweetness.

You are going to be all smoothed up for the wedding, and I'm going to be over here still munching on my sweet rolls. I need to change this pronto tonto. I'll start today. Smoothies all the way.

This sounds wonderful, and it might even enable me to sneak avocado by my husband… :-) (I love avocado and he does not.)

Tried this for breakfast this morning, with some added plain protein powder, and it was great - the best-tasting green smoothie I've had, and my husband liked it, too. Thanks for a great recipe.
