Pear-Basil Smoothie


A smoothie a day keeps the doctor away!! Really I believe it, a smoothie is a very easy way to get maximum nutrition in minimum efforts. Just throw the ingredients into the blender and just mix mix mix!!!! Well this smoothie is one of my favourites. I love everything this smoothie has. Pear (the star ingredient in this smoothie) is a fibrous, fat-free, cholesterol-free, vitamins-minerals-antioxidant rich, delicious, juicy super fruit. Whoa!! too much about pear in a single line...haha!! Pears, along with the other ingredients in this smoothie, make this smoothie a must in my smoothie's list. The kick of ginger, the zing of lime and lemon, the creaminess of cashews and the herby hint of basil makes this smoothie a must-try! And it is vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free too!! So try it soon and always cook the natural way!!




You need
2 medium-sized pears (chopped)
3 sweet-limes
1 cucumber (chopped)
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves (chopped)
1/4 cup cashew nuts (+ warm water for soaking)
1/2 water
2 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon ginger (grated)

Method
1. Soak cashews in warm water for 5 minutes. Discard the water later.

2. Squeeze out juice of sweet-limes.

3. Put all the ingredients in the blender. and blend till smooth. (you can strain the smoothie, if you wish). Pour the smoothie into the glasses and Enjoy!!

Serves 2
