Body-Mind-Spirit - Inspiration for Writers, Dreamers, and Seekers of Health & Happiness
My sister sent beautiful Harry & David pears for Christmas, but they all ripened at about the same time and the three of us couldn’t eat them fast enough. That’s when I remembered that once, when my daughter was younger and had a friend visiting, we invented a yummy pear smoothie. I dug out my old raw notebook, found the recipe, and updated it to include greens, which don’t affect flavor, but add nutrition. If you can’t find the micro greens listed here, spinach works because of its mild flavor. You’d never guess gorgeous, health-promoting-anti-sugar-craving-greens lurk in this sweet treat!

Blend the following in a high speed blender, such as a Vita Mix:
2 Royal Rivera Pears
2 Medjool dates
3/4 cup Trader Joe’s Organic Micro Greens
1-2 cups water depending on desired thickness
Blend, drink, enjoy and prosper!
