Day 4 : Greenhouse

This smoothie is my healthier take on a mojito. Sadly, it doesn’t include rum. On the up side, I can drink it before work and still have a job by the end of the day!I wanted to put together something light and refreshing that reminded me of summer.

These flavours resemble a sweet, garden salad and bring sunshine into gloomy, February mornings.
You’ll need:
1 sharply flavoured apple (I used a pink lady)

1/2 a dessert pear

A handful of fresh mint

Juice of 1 lime

2″ piece of cucumber 

4-5 gem lettuce leaves

1-2 tsp maple syrup

1/2″ piece ginger, peeled

1-2 cups water
Roughly chop the ingredients and blend until smooth.
