Riverford’s Avocado, Spinach and Pear Smoothie

Smoothies are a fantastic way to start eating more fruit and veg in the New Year. With a rainbow of sweet, juicy seasonal treats in our online shop, you can create all sorts of colourful flavour combinations!

Here’s a recipe from the Riverford kitchen combining creamy Yeo Valley natural yogurt with a delicious mix of fruit and veggies that we’re sure you will love.

No, wait! Give it a go. Avocado is technically a fruit after all – and what it lacks in sweetness, it makes up for with a creamy texture. The spinach adds a little of you daily greens and is soft‐leaved enough to not upset your blender blades. The banana is sweet and the pear sweeter still, so add it in increments to your taste. The only disadvantage to this recipe is trying to find an avocado and pear in perfectly ripened states at the same time.
