When it comes to smoothies, people often make some common mistakes. One of those is having too much sugar, even from fruit, in their smoothie. That’s why I love this particular recipe.
Pears are a low glycemic fruit, meaning they don’t spike your blood sugar as much as other fruit. They are also high in both soluble and insoluble fiber. The cinnamon adds a nice flavour, while also providing anti-microbial benefits. Lastly, you can’t forget to add a healthy fat to your smoothie – in this case hemp hearts. Hemp hearts have the ideal ratio of Omega 6:3 at 2:1, and have 10g of protein per serving.
