Spiced Pear Ginger Smoothie September 5, 2019 14:59 46 Comments
We love making our smoothies with fresh fruits that are available each season. End of summer means fresh pears are ready to pick off the trees and are added directly into a delicious smoothie full of antioxidants, electrolytes and fiber.
Pears are a low-glycemic fruit that won't spike your blood sugar. They are full of electrolytes like copper and magnesium. Pears are also a great source of Vitamin C and Potassium!
To make our delicious Spiced Pear Ginger Smoothie blend these ingredients together:
3 ripe pears with seeds and stem removed
1 scoop of Creamy Vanilla Complete Whey Protein Powder
Dash of Ceylon Cinnamon
Dash of Himalayan Sea Salt
2 fresh or frozen apricots with pits removed (sub peaches if desired)
1 fresh or frozen banana
1 teaspoon of Freshly grated Ginger root
add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract if desired
sprinkle Cinnamon and extra grated ginger on top after blending
for a Vegan smoothie sub Complete Pea Protein
for a Paleo smoothie sub Complete Paleo Protein
Pears are a great fruit that aids in weight loss. In addition to containing antioxidants like Vitamin C, pears are high in fiber, low in calories, high in water content and aid in digestion.
Not only are pears delicious in smoothies, they are a great addition to salads.
We suggest one Spiced Pear Ginger Smoothie in the morning blended with any of our Complete Protein Powders. For dinner: mix fresh arugula, spinach, grilled chicken, fresh pears, feta cheese and pecans. For dressing: blend olive oil, balsamic vinegar and fresh pears. Finish with salt and pepper. Yum!

Pea protein may have a positive effect on the maintenance of normal blood pressure levels and has also been shown, in animal studies, to have a positive impact on total cholesterol levels.
Complete Pea Protein is a great plant-based vegetarian protein source for athletes and anyone who is physically active.
Complete Pea Protein is easy to digest, a distinct advantage over other vegetable protein isolates, as it does not contain the commonly occurring "anti-nutrients" of soy or other legumes. The presence of high levels of these anti-nutrients found in other plant based proteins can cause substantial reductions in nutrient absorption and protein digestion.
Complete Pea Protein is a 100% VEGAN protein source made from North American grown yellow peas. Complete Pea Protein is a natural, non-GMO, pea protein which offers a high quality vegetable based protein with excellent digestibility.
Complete Pea Protein has an amino acid profile that is similar to that of whey protein. Its well-balanced profile fulfills the essential amino acid requirements often missing in the lower protein, vegetarian diet.

Lemon Ginger Protein Chews August 14, 2017 17:56
We got the inspiration for this delicious snack from a well known recipe called Switchel.
Switchel is an old Amish drink which is like their form of natural gatorade drank during haying made from lemon juice, ginger and turmeric. It’s full of antioxidants, electrolytes, boosts your immune system and helps control weight. It’s a very soothing and calming tea and helps your body relax and ready itself for sleep! We often drink this delicious beverage after dinner to help with digestion.
So we got to thinking, wouldn't this make a great base for a nutritious snack! It sure does! We added a bit of our Complete Whey Protein and raw nuts to make it a filling and delicious snack.
Lemon Ginger Protein Chews
Just blend the ingredients list and chill. This is a no-bake recipe. We do not heat any of our protein recipes. We rolled some of the batter into bite sized balls and we also pressed some into a dish and cut into squares.
1 cup of medjool dates pitted (we softened our dates in warm water before blending)
1 cup of oats
the juice and zest of 1 lemon
1 tsp. of turmeric powder
1 tsp. of ginger powder
1 cup of raw cashews
1 cup of raw almonds
1 cup (approx. 4 scoops) of Complete Whey Protein in the Creamy Vanilla Flavor
2 Tbsp. of Maple Syrup or Honey if you prefer
1/2 cup of melted coconut oil
a dash of Himalayan sea salt in the batter and on top of the squares or balls
Just press into a square dish once blended and chill for an hour.
Here's the recipe for Switchel also known as Haymaker's Punch:
Cut about a 1/4 cup of ginger root and turmeric root into small pieces and boil in filtered water until water turns rust color. If you don't have fresh ginger and turmeric root you can add 1 teaspoon each of powdered ginger and turmeric to boiled water.
Fill 2 mugs up with the boiled ginger and turmeric water
Juice one lemon and split evenly between mugs
Add 1 tsp. of Apple Cider Vinegar to each mug
Add 1 tsp. of Raw Honey to each mug
Add ice if desired
Enjoy with your loved ones!
