Post-Workout Smoothie Recipe

For a change of pace from banana-based smoothies, give this post-workout smoothie recipe a try - it calls for fresh, ripe pears. Though any variety will do, I find that Bartlett and Packham pears provide a smoother consistency than other varieties like Bosc and Anjou.

Makes about 4 servings


5 ripe pears, cored and cut into chunks
2 cups almond milk
2 tablespoons organic plant protein blend
2 tablespoons raw honey
1 vanilla bean, scraped, or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Blend all ingredients in a strong blender on high for 35 to 45 seconds.

Enjoy this post-workout smoothie - it provides a nice balance of healthy protein and healthy carbohydrates to optimally replenish and build your skeletal muscles.
