4. Perfect Pear Cranberry Smoothie

Serves 1

This is another paleo friendly smoothie that is also dairy free and gluten free. Loaded with disease fighting antioxidants such as vitamin C, it’s also loaded with fiber. Pears contain a compound that fights off lung and stomach cancers. Pears also taste great! What more reason do you need to slurp this up?!

1 Cup frozen, organic cranberries

2 Medjool dates, pitted

1 Medium organic pear

1 Cup almond milk

½ Teaspoon real vanilla

¼ Teaspoon of allspice

Put all items in the blender and mix on high until smooth and creamy, about 30 seconds. If you want this a bit thicker, add a few ice cubes.

 

5.  Simple Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Serves 2

When you make this recipe, close your eyes and take a drink. You will swear you are “drinking” a pumpkin pie!

2/3 Cup of fresh organic pumpkin (or canned pumpkin)

1 Cup of organic apple cider (not apple juice)

¼ Teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1 ¼ Cups organic frozen banana slices

¼ Cup of coconut milk

¼ Cup of ice

Add everything to your blender and mix on high for about 1 minute. Serve immediately and enjoy!

 

6. Figaro for Fall Smoothie

Serves 1

This is a different smoothie that uses the sweet taste of figs. You will find yourself making this one over and over again.

2 Handfuls of greens such as collard greens, baby kale, or baby spinach (read more about leafy vegetables for your health)

½ Medium organic bananas

2 Medium organic figs

½ Cooked organic sweet potato (with the skin)

¼ Cup of hemp seeds

¼ Cup of water or almond milk or coconut milk for smoothness

Place all items in your blender and mix well. You can add ice or a bit of water or almond milk if the smoothie is too thick for your liking. No other sweeteners should be required but if you like you can add a touch of raw, organic honey.
