HOW TO MAKE THIS HOLIDAY DETOX PEAR SMOOTHIE:

I drink smoothies like it’s my job. Which it is, sometimes, sort of. Which is awesome.

Start by adding milk and spinach to your blender and blend on high for a few seconds. Next, add all other ingredients and blend until smooth. If your green smoothie is too thick, add a splash more of milk. If it’s too thin, add a few more ice cubes. For more sweetness, add extra frozen banana, a packet of stevia or a seeded date. Pour into a large glass and enjoy every delicious sip!

This Holiday Detox Pear Smoothie is what I’ve been making over the last few days to help balance out all of the holiday-ish recipes and NYC eats.

My eating has looked a little something like this:

Oh yeah, and how could I forget the most incredible cookies ever, from Levain Bakery?

It’s safe to say, I’ve been eating really good or bad depending on your perspective. 🙂
