Print Avocado, spinach & pear smoothie

No wait! Give it a go. Avocado is technically a fruit after all. What it lacks in sweetness it makes up for with a creamy texture. The spinach adds a little of you daily greens and is soft-leaved enough to not upset your blender blades. The banana is sweet and the pear sweeter still, so add it in increments to your taste. The only disadvantage is trying to find an avocado and pear in perfectly ripened states at the same time.
