Pear, Carrot & Ginger Smoothies

Here is a quick recipe for a smoothie I made today.  The ingredient quantities are approximate, especially the carrot juice :)

The ingredients you will need are: 
5 pears
2 apples
2 cups fresh carrot juice or a little less
chunk of fresh chopped ginger
2 handfuls baby spinach
squeeze of lemon juice

It's very easy, all you need to do is:

1. Juice your carrots.  I always reserve the pulp to use in recipes later

2. Put it all into the blender and blend till smooth.  I haven't given quantities for the ginger as it's better to add to taste. If you like a thicker smoothie you might want to be conservative and add your carrot juice just a little at a time
