Smoothie Recipes with Martha Stewart – Spiced Pear
With warming cinnamon and spicy ginger
Posted November 7th, 2012 by noelle |
Often times friends ask me how I can drink a smoothie for breakfast during the winter. The secret, I believe, lies in spices. This is the time of year that I enjoy warming spices such as cinnamon and ginger. Cinnamon adds a wonderful sweetness to smoothies and acts as an invigorating, immune-boosting tonic (a perfect aid in your fight against winter colds and flus). Spicy ginger root is also a well-known cold fighter. It also supports healthy digestion and provides a detoxifying boost. Often, with the focus on just these two ingredients, I find that I’m able to enjoy some of the best smoothies, like this one. I hope you all have a healthy and happy week!
