Avocado Pear Smoothie
This recipe is from a Martha Stewart website.

1 cup pear juice
2 Tbsp. honey
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups ice
Puree until smooth, drink.
Get on the kale bandwagon with this green smoothie. If you don’t care for the broccoli, add a handful of spinach instead.
My son’s friend Omar came to visit the other day and presented me with a plastic cup of green stuff. “I got this smoothie at _____. It cost $20!” The green stuff was starting to turn grayish and separate in the cup. I politely took a sip and wished the nice young man had saved his $20. It tasted awful.
Juices and smoothies have become so popular, it seems that as soon as people exit their spinning or yoga classes they have purple or green beverages attached to their hands, expensive purple or green beverages! Are they worth it?
