Apple Pear Green Smoothie

 I love making smoothies and really encourage my clients to incorporate smoothies regularly.

Why? They are incredibly easy on the digestive tract because they are liquid and readily absorbable. I love that you can take smoothies with you on the go if you’re someone who doesn’t have time to sit down and eat. Most people struggle getting their recommended intake of fruit and vegetables so adding a smoothie or two each day really helps.


Best part about smoothies is you can get as creative as you’d like! Adding in powerhouse ingredients is simple! Examples: flaxseed or hemp oil, nuts/seeds, protein powder, Spirulina, raw honey, raw cacao, etc.


I love making green smoothies each day to ensure I’m getting my leafy greens in. They are very subtle in smoothies especially behind all the fruit (it’s a great way to get kids to eat their greens)!


1-2 Cups of pure, clean filtered water (adjust for desired consistency)

1 apple

1 pear

1 banana

A huge handful of spinach (use spinach if you’re new to smoothies – it’s very mild but you can easily add in kale or any other leafy green!)

1 lemon (skin removed)

1 tbsp flaxseed oil

3-4 ice cubes,blend & enjoy!

Optional: protein powder, 1-2tsp Spirulina powder, handful of raw nuts


Due to popular demand I’ll be running Smoothies 101 again  the first Saturday in April! Contact FFC if you’re interested. Spaces are limited.
