Pre pilates smoothie

pear, ginger and spinach green smoothie

During the week I do most of my activities in the evenings due to work hours. A scattered netball timetable doesn't allow me much of a routine, and preparing meals can sometimes be tricky due to varying game times.

But Tuesday night is pilates night. Same time, same place - easy. The class is later in the evening, so this does give me the opportunity for dinner an hour or so before hand. I usually go for a smoothie, they are quick and easy to make, and allow me to feel comfortable during a core pilates session. Plus they taste so good.

This weeks smoothie uses 1 pear, half an avocado, a handful of kale, a cup of water (more or less if preferred), teaspoon of grated ginger, juice of half a lemon and mint leaves to suit your taste (I love mint, so I pile it in).

Place everything in the blender and blitz until smooth.
