This smoothie is gently green, with the mint & lime flavors of a mojito! This is like a baby step into adding greens into a smoothie. The green-ness seems appropriate and that you expect it to be green! I used frozen pear, but banana, apple would be fine too – shoot for something mild so the mint and the lime can really stand out.
Mojito Breakfast Smoothie
1 cup baby spinach
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1/4 cup milk
1 cup frozen pear
bunch of mint leaves
1/2 lime: squeezed for juice & zested
Add spinach, yogurt, and milk to a blender and blend very thoroughly.
Then add in the frozen pear, mint, lime juice, and lime zest.
Blend and add more milk if it is too thick for your liking.
Enjoy! I loved that this was creamy from the milk and yogurt while fresh from the mint and lime.
