SWEET PEAR SMOOTHIE
Pears are packed with fiber, folic acid, vitamin A and C. This recipe helps keep you fuller longer as well as helps your body heal quickly with extra support for your hair, skin and nails. And adding cinnamon to your food regulates your blood sugar levels, reduces harmful cholesterol, and sends a sweet boost to your metabolism.
1 cup spinach, fresh
1 cup almond milk (or milk of your choice)
1 tablespoon almond butter
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Directions: Blend until smooth. Top with cinnamon. Enjoy!
Note: I love to doctor up my shakes and add as much good stuff as possible to maximize nutrition. This means adding anything from 2-3 Brazil nuts, a tablespoon of collagen powder, a scoop of whey protein powder, a tablespoon of spirulina, a tablespoon of MCT oil, or a tablespoon of chia and/or hemp seeds. What other healthy add-ins can you think of adding to your smoothie?
