Apple, pear and ginger smoothie

Serves 2 15 min
To up the nutritional content and reduce the sweetness, add a large handful of spinach or an avocado. It'll go alarmingly green, but that's part of the charm. Avocado also gives a nice, creamy texture. If you're using organic fruit, you don't have to bother removing the peel; the smoothie will be a little less smooth, but even better for you.

  • 1 pear, peeled and cored
  • 1-2 tbsp honey
