Warm Pear and Ginger Smoothie
A warm smoothie can really cheer up chilly winter mornings! For little ones who are struggling with colds this might also be something a little different which can help soothe sore throats. The ginger and natural probiotics in the yoghurt can also help boost immune systems. Just a note on the almonds - the Nutri Bullet is pretty powerful and can easily blend whole nuts but you could always use some almond butter instead.
Small piece of peeled ginger (about a thumb nail)
1/2 cup of unsweetened yoghurt
1 and 1/2 cups of unsweetened almond milk
1 tb of honey (optional)
1. Warm the almond milk for two minutes in the microwave.
2. Add the pears (skin included), almonds, youghurt into the blender. Pour the warm milk in over the top and add honey if desired.
3. Blend and enjoy while warm!
