Poached Pear Smoothie

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

Smoothies are a quick and easy breakfast filled with fiber and nutrients, but when it’s cold outside, you may crave something warm in the morning. Enter the warm smoothie. It’s a great way to enjoy a variety of fruits and vegetables while the weather is cool. You can easily simmer ingredients on the stove and then transfer to a blender. This recipe combines pears and warm almond milk with cinnamon, nutmeg and sweet dates for a deliciously thick smoothie.
