Ready your taste buds for a zesty zing with the fresh ginger in this green smoothie. This wonderfully refreshing smoothie contains a combination of omega-3s, protein, magnesium, and anti-inflammatory properties. And we’re so happy to use pears in this recipe because we rarely use them.

Pears are highly nutritious fruits, containing complex carbohydrates, vitamin C, fiber, potassium, copper, and vitamin K. One of the great things about pears is that they are rich in flavonoid antioxidants that fight inflammation. Preliminary studies also found that these flavonoids exhibit potential anti-cancer properties. So what are you waiting for? Drink up, already!
