PEARfectly Healthy Protein Smoothie
Do you know what I love most smoothies? You can put just about anything them. The combinations are basically endless with all the beautiful fruits and vegetables out there. Now, I’m not promising that every combination you try you are gonna love. In fact, you may throw one or two down the drain. The great thing about you being here and being a part of my blog, is that I have over 50 smoothies that I have tried and love right here at your fingers tips!
In fact, I have another one for you today. You will notice that my smoothies are a pretty even mix of fruits and vegetables, while fruit is sweet and delicious, it also sugary. I want my smoothies to not only be delicious, but healthy. When I start my day with a healthy smoothie, I feel better. I know that I am giving my body what it needs. You will also notice that I put cinnamon (helps metabolism), turmeric (helps with inflammation), chia seeds (because they are nutritional powerhouses), and protein powder in most of my smoothies, I will happily take the extra health benefits every chance I can.
Today’s smoothie recipe has pear in it, and this is actually the first time I have put pear in a smoothie! I usually buy it and put it on my pizza or in salads, but from now on, I will be using them more in my smoothies! I loved the crisp, freshness that the pear added to my smoothie.

When prepping your fruits and vegetables for your smoothie, be sure they are clean! Even if you are using organic produce, you have no idea how many times they were handled and by who. And when you wash your produce, make sure you are using an all-natural product like Veggie Wash. Veggie Wash safely and effectively removes wax, soil, and agricultural chemicals found on standard and organic produce. It cuts through wax and chemicals to leave fruits and vegetables truly, safely clean. What’s more, Veggie Wash uses ingredients from citrus, corn, and coconut, to remove harmful surfaces. Get rid of the dirt and preservatives and keep the nutrients!
