‘Pear-icious’ Breakfast Smoothie

I saw some beautiful red pears at the market yesterday and I obviously had to have them – they looked SO good!  And thus, I present you with a ‘Pear-icious’ Breafast Smoothie today!

Consuming the skin of the pear will not only provide you with LOADS of dietary fibre, but, here is a fun fact:  the skin of the pear contains 3 to 4 times  the phenolic phytonutrients as comparing to its flesh, including antioxidants, anti-inflammatory flavonoids, and potentially anti-cancer phytonutrients like cinnamic acids (The World’s Healthiest Foods).

Red pears in particular have a high concentration of the phytonutrient anthocyanin which has anti-aging properties and promotes heart health!

Overall, this ‘Pear-icious’ Breafast Smoothie will provide you with Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, potassium, fibre, manganese, magnesium, folate and protein.

Delicious and nutritious, you’ll LOVE this smoothie, and not just for breakfast!

Cheers to YOUR health!
