Ginger pear smoothie

Surely there is a good Halloween name for this concoction. Witches brew? Frog's breath smoothie? It's yummy no matter the name.

I know it's been a while since I've posted anything, but this smoothie was too good to not share. I've been on a breakfast smoothie kick lately, but this one was a lunchtime concoction created out of a desire to liquify a pear. So here it goes- ginger pear smoothie.

One cup spinach
One cup kale
One cup milk

Blend. Add:

One banana
One pear
One tablespoon honey
Half scoop vanilla protein powder
Half teaspoon ginger
Half teaspoon cinamon




The spices lend it a fallish kick, as does the pear. Coming in at around 400 calories with about 22 grams of protein, this makes a great lunch. I might try fresh ginger next time, or just more ginger generally. Definitely a new one for the rotation.
