First Day of Spring Smoothie
As I mentioned yesterday I tend to be a food monogamist. As with my salads, I will drink the same green smoothie everyday for weeks ( and weeks) at a time. A great smoothie is like the perfect pair of dark skinny jeans, it can be hard to break out of the box and try on something new.
With the early onset of spring in NYC (loving it!) I have been trading in my perfect dark skinnies for this spring's pastels, florals, and neons. Like my denim, my greens are also getting a spring update! With the warm weather I am pulling away from my usual wintery kale and towards lighter greens such as arugula and romaine in my salads and smoothies.
This combination of creamy almond milk, sweet pear, spicy arugula and ginger is my latest smoothie obsession. Yes, I have been drinking it everyday this week. Guess I've found a new perfect pair of skinny jeans...
Arugula Pear Spice Smoothie
- 1 cup almond milk (if you do not feel like making your own I highly recommend OMilk!)

- big handful of arugula
- 1" knob of fresh ginger peeled
- 1/4 of an avocado

- liquid stevia to taste
- Combine all ingredients in a high powered blender or Vitamix
