Paddy’s Green Smoothie

I actually came across this recipe by accident yesterday. We didn’t have much in for breakfast (I do my ‘big shop’ on a Monday evening usually) but we had a few bits in so I thought I would throw together a green smoothie. Lucky thing about smoothies is that quantities can be an estimate so just add to taste really. I put it all together but thought it needed something sweeter, so I added a few drops of vanilla extract and hey presto, a filling smoothie that St. Patrick would be proud of (it is green after all) 😉

    awesome! I find that using a nutribullet for apples and pears gives a really nice consistency, but not with a normal blender (maybe just mine haha!) will try this tomorrow! love it! I’m a fitness blogger on here too 🙂
