Oh my goodness! It’s been an entire WEEK since I shared a smoothie recipe! I know you guys were just dying for another one so I’m back with a smoothie that is going to knock your socks off  :)

This smoothie has so many intensely fantastic flavors and the combination of ingredients are really designed to WAKE you up and get going.  Every single ingredient in this smoothie serves a purpose.

Pears are high in fiber, are high in Vitamin C, contain antioxidants to help prevent high blood pressure, and can help lower cholesterol levels.  Ginger helps calm the digestive system and aids in muscle recuperation.  Cinnamon does SO much including help lower cholersterol and regulate blood sugar.  Like cinnamon, oats have so many health benefits but the main reason they find their way into my smoothies is because of their fiber content which helps keep you full.

Please feel free to substitute in your favorite milk product (soy, almond, etc.) and a flavored Greek  yogurt if you want.  You all know I’m a HUGE fan of Greek yogurt because it has so much protein in it.  When I have a smoothie, it is almost ALWAYS a meal replacement so I need that protein in there :)

I know some people aren’t huge fans of ginger.  I get it. But please try this recipe once using the amount I’ve listed below and see what you think before reducing or eliminating it altogether. I actually like to double that amount but I really love ginger :)  It makes me feel awake and alert.

  2. I love this flavor combination, Trish! I’m crazy about pears and ginger — there’s no going wrong for me. Great idea to dice fresh pear and freeze it..why on earth didn’t I think of that? ha

  3. This looks like a great recipe to try. I want to start making smoothies for breakfast, what kind of blender do you use?

  4. I’m new to using ginger, I assume you peel it first before grating.

  5. This looks delicious and so healthy! Love the ingredients you use. Ginger is a great ingredient and makes everything taste better. Thanks for sharing!

    I make smoothies most mornings! Looking forward to trying your recipes. One question, I have never used oats in my smoothies…do you cook them first or just use raw oats?

  7. I’m new to making smoothies. Can you make make this the night before and any idea how many calories are in this?

    • This cannot be made the night before otherwise the oats will absorb all the liquid and it will get super thick. I don’t know the calorie count but there are a lot of online tools that can help. Just do a search for calorie counter :) Enjoy Katie!
