Green Smoothie +Avocado Pesto

green smoothie avocado pesto pasta

I tried two green recipes: A green smoothie recipe from Buzzfeed and avocado pesto from Tastemade. I had to double both recipes to make enough to share with my family of seven. Overall, these were very quick and easy recipes I’d highly recommend. They are both gorgeous green colors that are practically too pretty to consume. There’s just something about eating green that makes me feel recharged and healthier. Does anyon else get total ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ vibes from these?

The Green Smoothie Ingredients

  • 1 cup of unsweetened soy milk
  • 1/2 a banana
  • 1/2 a pear
  • 1 cup of kale (packed)
  • 1 tablespoon of almond butter.

Simply, put all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until the ingredients are completely blended together. What a fast and healthy way to have your greens. By the way I definitely had my qualms about the kale, but this smoothie was surprisingly yummy and sweet. It doesn’t even need any additional sugar.

The avocado pesto is made of:

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 large handful of basil 
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon of salt
  • 4 tablespoons of lemon juice

Put all the ingredients into a food processer or blender. Boil egg noodles, add the pesto, and enjoy. This dish had a mixed response from my family: my two youngest siblings didn’t like avocado at the time, but everyone else thoroughly enjoyed it. My mom used to call avocados nature’s butter and she’d serve it to us mashed up with crushed ice and sugar in a glass. When I was younger I didn’t like the taste of avocado either, but eventually it grew on me.
