Pear Ginger & Oat Smoothie

Written by chanie on February 2nd, 2014

I’m always so inspired when I see people posting pics of their green detox smoothies and drinks. It makes me want to go out and buy a juicer. Today, my sister in law took me to an amazing smoothie bar on the Hollywood Beach Boardwalk. They make a mixture called Thank God Juice which includes a combination of spinach, kale, collard greens, parsley, celery, fennel and romaine. You can add Thank G-d juice to any other juice flavors, or drink it straight-up. I’m the type that needs to hide the greens in my smoothies so I added apple, beet and carrot juice.

Since I don’t yet have a juicer, blended smoothies are all I can make – but they can be just as healthy and delicious! I love adding oats to my smoothies – they turn a fruity drink into an all out breakfast. Ginger adds great flavor and brightness, not to mention various health benefits.

What are some of your favorite juice or smoothie combinations? Share it with me in the comments below!

  1. I am going to make this today without the oats. Can’t wait!!!

  2. I love smoothies but I can’t recall when I added pears. I can’t wait to try this recipe!

  3. Wow looks and sounds so refreshing!

  4. I love this smoothie.

    When I fix smoothies, they usually have a chocolate component. Not the healthiest, but they sure make me smile! :-)

    My coworker also loves oats in his smoothies. I keep saying I should try it. Am curious if I would like the texture. This flavor combo looks great!

  6. For me a smoothie must always include a frozen banana. My Favorite combination is almond, milk, banana, blueberries and flax seeds.

  7. Hi, Chanie! This looks so wonderfully creamy, yummy … and filling! Pear and ginger are so lovely together – what a great idea to combine them in a smoothie! I don’t own a juicer, either, so I’m with you on the smoothie thing. But gosh – I don’t know if I have one go-to fave (besides my pineapple creamsicle smoothie that I’m just addicted to) – I really love tinkering with new combinations! :D

    Like the oat aspect of this. Also the pear. I have some problems with smoothies though because I cant eat bananas, so the texture isn’t always right.

  9. I loooove that place! I’m so glad I now have a way of replicating one of their best!

  10. I love pears and they work surprisingly well in smoothies, plus they are really high in fiber so they should help with that detox you are looking for.

  11. I love smoothies, this sounds like a really yummy combo!

  12. I like this idea – I usually buy frozen fruit to make smoothies, so this would be a good change. I also think it would be sweet enough that my kids might like it as well!
