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.

I hadn't experimented much with pears but they add a wonderful creamy texture with lots of natural sweetness.  They are delicious in smoothies!

I incorporate kefir into this recipe.  I always like to look for ways I can add nourishing probiotic foods into my diet.  If you don't make your own kefir, which I highly recommend for many reasons, you can buy plain kefir at the store, or you could use some plain yogurt or extra coconut milk. Coconut milk is simple to make and you can see how I do it here.
