The warmer weather is fast approaching (at least here in Idaho!). I tend to start craving simpler more fresh and light foods with the onset of spring. Green smoothies are a great way to incorporate more fruits and veggies into your diet. They are pure, raw, unadulterated and delicious!

There are an infinite number of combinations that you can come up with, which is part of the fun, but in the beginning stages, it’s nice to have some recipes to follow. Here is a yummy combination I came up with recently.

If you want even more inspiration, you can check out all of these amazing smoothie recipes right here on the Delicious Obsessions site. All of these delicious recipes are going to be gluten, grain, and refined sugar-free. Those that contain dairy give you easy options to make the whole recipe dairy-free!

I hadn’t experimented much with pears but they add a wonderfully creamy texture with lots of natural sweetness. They are delicious in smoothies. If you’re not a fan of pears, another great way to get some creaminess in your smoothies (as well as some healthy fats) is avocado! I know it sounds weird, but you won’t taste it, I promise. But you will be blown away by the amazing texture it provides.

I love incorporating kefir into this recipe. It’s an easy way to get some added probiotics. You can always make your own at home, or find great quality brands (both dairy and non-dairy) at your local grocery and health food stores. 

In regards to the greens, I love green smoothies, but I recommend not overdoing it on them. Greens can be hard to process for some folks and those who are sensitive to oxalates may find that green drinks, juices, and smoothies create issues for them. You can always go by what your own intuition says and create delicious smoothies to suit your needs.
