A GREEN WAY TO START YOUR DAY!!
THE SPICED PEAR SMOOTHIE
When I find something I like, it’s balls to the walls, no turning back. and yes, I said it. I totally have an addictive personality......Loving healthy food keeps me loving my HEALTHY BODY!!
Okay, I’m done.
This brings me to my new obsession...my favorite smoothie. For this month, at least. I have to credit the Guilty Kitchen for introducing me to her smoothie which then inspired this one below.
I’ll have this mid-morning or later afternoon. It’s been a daily ritual this past week.
I’d be going strong, but I’m heading out of town tomorrow. Already looking forward to it when I return, unless there’s a new one.
Let me just tell you, this is one delicious way to get in your daily greens.
Spiced Pear Smoothie
- 5-6 ice cubes
- 1 cup almond milk, or milk of preference
- 1 pear, peeled and diced – about 1 cup
- 1/2 cup Kale, stems removed and cut or torn into pieces
- 1 tablespoon fresh ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- pinch of nutmeg
- drop of vanilla extract
- pinch of stevia for added sweetness – or honey or agave
Add ice cubes and milk to your blender and pulse a few times or choose option “crush ice”. Then add in the rest of your ingredients and blend until completely smooth.
Pour yourself a big tall glass and enjoy!
Tip: Peel and chop pear(s), put them in a ziplock or airtight container and freeze. This will help make your smoothies extra cold.
