I’m one of those people that blends every freaking day. There is something so simple about smoothies: just throw whatever you have inside the blender and its done! Many times I go wild and start adding all kinds off extra stuff I keep in jars: almonds, chia seeds, chlorella powder…whatever is on hand. But there are other days when I just keep it simple.
The pears were looking good at the farmers market this week so I couldn’t resist creating this creamy, sweet spicy drink for lazy summer days.
(Makes 2 big glasses)
– 2 ripe pears
– 2 frozen bananas (I recommend buying them fresh and freezing them in halves)
– as much or as little ginger as you fancy
– 1 1/2 glass of water
Just chop it all up, grind the ginger ( a cheese grater works well for this) and toss everything into the blender. For the pears, you can leave the skin or take it out. I buy everything organic so I tend to leave the skin.
I topped it with chia seeds…just so that it would look prettier for the pictures.
If you don’t have a super blender remember to add the soft fruits first and the frozen ones later.
Hope this smoothie adds some spice to your day!
