Ginger Pear Smoothie Recipe

Ginger Pear Smoothie

I know you know that I think smoothies are the greatest thing since sliced bread (gluten-free of course!). Usually my smoothies do not contain fruit, I prefer adding greens like kale and our Phyto Greens powder instead. However, when winter rolls around, I love to make this Ginger Pear Smoothie, it’s got a great kick from the ginger which is balanced by the sweetness of the pear. It’s rich and creamy and every sip tastes like a treat!

I like to use Be Well’s Whey Protein Powder, especially since I make my smoothie after working out. It’s a great post-workout recovery drink and it’s also a satisfying and filling breakfast. You can make this with Sustain too if you prefer a vegetarian protein instead.

Here’s what I do:

  • 1 scoop Be Well Whey Protein powder
  • 8 – 10 oz water (or half water, half almond or coconut milk)
  • 1 fresh pear, peeled and diced (I use Barlett pears)
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated or 1/8 tsp ground ginger powder
  • 1/5 of an avocado
  • 4 cubes of ice

Blend in a blender till smooth and creamy. Makes one serving.

Other optional ingredients I like to add:

  • 1 tbs chia seeds – great source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids
  • 1 scoop Be Well Fiber – keeps things moving smoothly
  • 1 tbs Maca powder if I want an additional boost
  • 1 tbs Phyto Greens or a handful kale – because you can never have enough veggies!
Let us know what you like to add to your smoothies.
