...green drink...

Green drink has been made by family friends of ours for awhile.  When I nannied for the girls I failed to remember how to make it and maybe thought they wouldn't ask for it while their parents were away.  Well, they did ask and I had to admit that I didn't know how to make it.  I know now- my Mom and I made it today.  It's super healthy and tasty.  Not at all like green juice from the store that sometimes really doesn't taste good.

If you have an awesome blender that would be, well awesome.  We used a regular old blender and it worked fine although there was some more work involved just making sure it was all incorporated.

Here's your recipe.  I highly recommend this drink- super healthy- refreshing- and a great way to get in those vitamins and greens!

1 banana
1 apple, cored, chopped- skin on
1 pear, cored, chopped- skin on
2-3 handfuls of spinach
thumb size piece of ginger, peeled and chopped
1 tablespoon honey


1.  In your blender put just 1/4 cup water and a little crushed ice.  Add 1 banana broken up, 1 apple cored and cut up, 2-3 handfuls of spinach, 1 pear cored and cut up, ginger, and on top put some honey and more crushed ice.  Blend through and enjoy!

You may want to add more ice or water to your liking, but the above should work out well especially if your pear is ripe.  It'll be super green, and super delicious.


  1. Do you usually use a Granny Smith/green apple?

  2. I used a gala apple- any kind you like will do!

  3. Delicious! I was actually expecting an alcoholic beverage, but this is good, too!

  4. Ha- no alcohol just straight up fruits and veg!
