Pear Cardamon Smoothie
I felt like something different and knew I needed to do something with my over ripe pears. Here’s what I came up with. I love the Indian taste from the Cardamon.
You can do it with or without the greens
1 pear, seeded, but with skin
2 cardamon pods (or a bit of ground cardamon)
1½ cup water
a few greens, such as sunflower sprouts, baby arugula, spinach, (optional)
1 dash sweetner, such as agave (or to taste)
Put everything in the Vita Mix/ blender. If you are using whole cardamon pods, DO NOT PUT IN PODS…open them with your fingers and let the seeds fall into the blender container. Do not use the outer pod.
Blend and drink. It might be nice on ice. :)
