Recipe: Monday Madness Smoothie

Today’s lunchtime smoothie blended the flavors of pear, pineapple, strawberry, banana, cinnamon, vanilla, and ginger. The results tasted so good that I’ve called it “Monday Madness.” Sorry no photo because I was too busy drinking it!

Put the following ingredients into a blender and let ‘er rip:

  • 1 ripe organic Bartlett pear, cored and chopped*
  • 1 ring of pineapple (I used Dole canned)
  • 10 frozen organic strawberries (Cascade Farms)
  • 1 frozen organic banana, chopped*
  • Fistful of mixed greens (baby spinach, baby kale, and Swiss chard)
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla flavored whey protein powder (Designer Whey)
  • 1/2 cup organic soy milk (Soy Dream enriched, unflavored)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • About 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger

Makes 2 pint-sized glasses.

* I chopped the fruit into smaller chunks to make it easier and quicker to blend.
