As you might know from my Some Of My Christmas Goddies post I got a Nutribullet for christmas and its my new bestfriend. Ive made loads of different smoothies using some recipes from the fab book that came with the Nutribullet but also making some of my own smoothie recipes up as I go along, and this recipe has to be my favourite so far. So here it is...

Apple, Celery, Lime, Pear and Mint

homemade smoothie
1x Apple 
Apple Juice Or Water
1-2 Sticks Of Celery
1/2 A Large Lime Or 1 Whole Small Lime
1 Juicy Pear
Around 8-12 Leaves Of Mint 

smoothie ingredients

First wash all of the ingredients before use, then cut them up into chunks ready for blending.
Blend the celery, apple, pear, half a limes juice, 8 mint leaves and some apple juice or water (as much as you want depending on your desired consistency).

Now taste your smoothie and decide if you would like to add more mint and lime juice. 
I do it this way as the lime juice especially can be overpowering and make the smoothie taste very sour and this way you can taste as you go along making sure you don't ruin the taste of the smoothie. With the right amount of these this smoothie tastes amazing I assure you!

If you want to add a little antioxidant boost to this smoothie you can add 1-2 dessert spoonfuls of Organic Barley Grass can be shopped Here. This is optional as you will most likely be able to taste the Barley Grass in the smoothie however I personally like the taste and add it to lots of smoothies I make. If you choose to use Barley Grass and want to dilute the taste a bit I advise using apple juice instead of water in this recipe.
