Cactus Pear Smoothie

Serving Size: 3

Ingredients

  • 3 cactus pears
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tsp honey
  • handful of ice
  • 1 1/2 cup of milk
  • handful of spinach (optional)

Directions

Store bought cactus pears usually have the spines removed already. But if not then here is a link on how to take the spines off.

Add the ice, banana, and honey in the blender.

Wash the cactus pear and cut both ends off.

Make a slit down the middle of the pear deep enough that it almost hits the center of the fruit.

Begin peeling off the outer layer of the fruit.

Begin straining the juice into the blender. I used a spoon to press the pulp against the tea strainer.

Add the milk and spinach. Blend thoroughly.

Optional: You can add a sprig of mint.
