Nettle and Pear Smoothie Recipe

Nettle Leaf and Pear Smoothie

I got the idea to make this smoothie after seeing a lot of pear and spinach smoothies around in health food cafes. I thought “well that has to also be good with nettles instead of spinach” and I was right. This is a hearty smoothie, perfect for enjoying cooled on a summers day or to keep away that mid-morning hunger – either way it’s truly delicious.

Ingredients: per person

  • 1 pear, chopped with the middle removed
  • 5 nettle tops, washed (or spinach)
  • 200ml hazelnut milk (or regular milk)
  • 2 ice cubes

Method:

  1. Chuck the whole lot in to a blender or smoothie machine and blend until nice and smooth.
  2. Enjoy chilled
  3. It’s also works well as a winter smoothie without the ice and with half a thumb of ginger instead.
