Ok…So, this smoothie is the healthiest and most filling smoothie ever. PERIOD
Once you see the ingredients you will get a fair idea of what I am taking about. But the main realisation settles in when you actually make it.
Pears, almond milk, superfoods, spinach, protein powder all together act like a powerful recovery boost post workout or just to awaken a dead morning. I found this recipe in my favourite book-`The Blender Girl´, and love making it as a post workout meal. It is an easy way to incorporate a lot of healthy ingredients in one thing and drink them up.
Trust me for the taste and do try it!!
