Ingredients

  • 1 ripe pear skin on, cored and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger peeled and grated or chopped
  • 2 cups packed baby spinach
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice from about 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons hemp hearts
  • 2 cups unsweetened non-dairy milk of choice
  • 2 pitted soft Medjool dates or 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup optional
  • 1 cup ice
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder (optional)

Instructions

  • Combine all the ingredients in a blender. Blend on high until very smooth. Taste and add additional dates or maple syrup if you prefer a sweeter smoothie.

Notes

Add a little extra maple syrup or dates 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.
For nut-free be sure to use a nut-free milk like oat milk, coconut milk or hemp milk.
For vegan, be sure to use a plant-based protein powder.
For paleo, be sure to use a paleo-friendly protein powder.
