pear fresh ginger baby spinach lemon juice hemp seeds ice non-dairy milk of choice (unsweetened) optional: vanilla protein powder Medjool dates (or pure maple syrup)

hemp seeds:

Hemp seeds (sometimes called hemp hearts) are packed with fiber and a great way to add plant-based protein & omegas to any recipe. Look for them in the nut and seed section of your grocery store, or order them online (or omit them if you prefer)!



Combine all the ingredients in a blender.



Blend on high until very smooth and creamy.



Taste and add additional dates or maple syrup if you prefer a sweeter smoothie.

If using frozen pear & ginger in place of fresh you can skip the ice. For a thinner consistency, add more milk. Skip or reduce the ginger to reduce the spice level. If you can’t find ripe pears, substitute 1 cored, chopped apple.
