Cardamom Pear Cream Smoothie
This is my new favorite green smoothie. It is smooth & creamy, low fat and alkalizing. I add dehydrated shredded / desiccated coconut & chill for a beautiful pudding. You could probably add thick creamed coconut for a smooth pudding also, but I have not tried that yet. But I plan to!!! MMMmmmm
1 ripe green pear, roughly chopped
1 medjool date, pitted & chopped
2 teaspoon hulled hemp seed
1 organic kale leaf, devined, or 1 medium conventially grown leaf
2 loose handfuls of baby spinach leaves
1 inch piece fresh vanilla bean, snipped in pieces
¼ teaspoon of ground cardamom
1 squeeze fresh lemon juice
- Add the chopped pear to the Vitamix first. Then add the rest of the ingredients.
- Add water until it reaches the top of the pears in the Vitamix.
- Blend smooth without overdoing it, so that the pear does not oxidize
