What’s in this yummy smoothie?
- Bartlett pear: They are also known as Williams pears. When ripe, these pears are juicy, have a soft texture, and sweet, slightly tart flavor. Plus, they are good source of vitamin C, fiber, and iron.
- Frozen ripe banana: It helps sweeten the drink and gives it a creamy texture too. In addition, it is high in fiber and potassium.
- I always keep peeled ripe bananas in my freezer to make smoothies.
- Baby spinach: Is perfect to add to smoothies because of the tender texture, mild flavor, and it’s full of nutritious benefits such vitamins A and C, iron, and magnesium.
- Ground cinnamon: It gives this drink a bit of warming spiciness.
- Unsweetened almond milk: It’s smooth and a little nutty in flavor too. Since it’s dairy-free, it’s great for those that are lactose intolerant or on a vegan diet.
- Substitute with another milk of your choice if you like such a dairy milk, oat milk, or coconut milk.
- Pure vanilla extract: It adds a light sweet vanilla note to the smoothie that complements the fruit and cinnamon perfectly.
- Pure maple syrup: This ingredient adds richer sweet notes to the smoothie.
