I am not a picky eater. But when it comes to drinks, I am the most pickiest person in the world. My drink consumption consists of water, the shakes featured on this blog (for special occasions) and perhaps a hot chocolate on a cold day.
I just can’t get into replacing a meal or snack with liquid. It never fills me up. Plus, I don’t like having sugar-filled shakes for a meal.
So, I was pleasantly surprised when I made this shake and I did get filled up. And, it’s not a killer sweet drink (which makes it more appealing to me!). Rather, the ginger and lime gives it a more… savory (?) taste.I finally have a “drinkable meal” for when I’m on the go 🙂
So warning: do not expect a dessert-like drink (if you do, just add a banana/sweetener!)
Ginger-Pear Avocado Shake (Paleo)
1 pear, peeled and sliced
2 cups fresh spinach
1 and 1/2 cups almond milk
5 ice cubes
3 tbsp lime juice
2 tbsp minced ginger
1/4 tsp salt
optional: protein powder, coconut sugar, honey, or maple syrup if sweetness is desired (I omit though)
Blend all ingredients together until smooth.
