Smoothie Wednesday: Spiced Pear

Posted by

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 flu). 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!

  • What's your problem? Don't be so racist, dude. Appearance doesn't change their personality. What would you know about who can and can't make music. Who are you to say that black people aren't meant to make music?! And to say that ALL of them can't?! Full of lies, yes they can. They can do anything others can. And being completely mean about it by saying that they are meant to be enslaved,? just pisses me off. Why even watch this if you think they're no good.
