Pear Ginger Smoothie

When I have only 2 minutes for a healthy breakfast, I go for a smoothie. This is a favorite because pear and ginger taste fabulicious together! It takes just 5 ingredients – plus any optional super foods you’d like to add. I drink it in the car, and it keeps me going with stable energy for several hours. Use any blender. Serves 2
