Pear Ginger Green Smoothie

Pear Ginger Green Smoothie

( Kellie HemmerlyDrinks, BreakfastAmerican )

Start your day with a natural energy boost. This Pear Ginger Green Smoothie with chia seeds is a refreshing way to fuel up in the morning. Sweetened with a bit of honey, this smoothie recipe by The Suburban Soapbox can easily pass as dessert. Fresh, juicy Harry & David Royal Riviera Pears add a natural sweetness to an otherwise bland green smoothie. This is my favorite way to lighten up my morning breakfast routine without refined sugar or artificial sweeteners. Plain low-fat Greek yogurt creates a creamy consistency and chia seeds help you feel fuller longer. The ginger adds a pleasant, pepper bite that's simply fantastic with the other ingredients. Whole pears (no need to even peel it�extra vitamins!) are blended until smooth with fresh baby spinach, ginger, banana, Greek yogurt, chia seeds, honey and a bit of milk to create a delicious breakfast on-the-go. Ready in just a few minutes, this is one smoothie you'll be adding to the breakfast rotation for sure!
