the most refreshing smoothie

I have been experimenting with mint this week, an "experimint" if you will. Nothing better than a bad pun. Anyway, I had bought some mint to make my mint chocolate truffles, and had tons left over. So, after a few teas, I made some infused ice cubes. This was actually a way better idea than the tea because it is sooooo hot lately!

I just froze some mint leaves in some of the cubes and some blueberries in the others. Blueberry and mint infused ice water on a hot summer day, very refreshing. 

But... not as refreshing as this smoothie! I am claiming it, the most refreshing smoothie... EVER! I just got off of work, cooking in a steamy little cafe over two hot crepe grills, lets just say I was a hot mess. Until now...

  • 1 pear, cut up
  • small handful fresh mint leaves
  • big handful fresh baby spinach
  • 3 or 4 chunks frozen pineapple
  • about 1/2 cup coconut water
blend and be refreshed!
