    This ninja blender recipe tastes like ice cream and is a protein powerful containing spinach, almond butter, and hemp seeds. Pears pair fantastic with the earthiness of the other ingredients, and ginger gives extra feeling.

    2 servings

    Ingredients:

    • 1 cup (240ml) unsweetened almond or hemp milk (strained if homemade)
    • ½ teaspoon probiotic powder
    • 1 tablespoon vegan vanilla protein powder (hemp, rice, or other)
    • 3 ripe pears, skin on, cored and diced
    • 2 cups (86g) firmly packed baby spinach
    • ½ banana
    • 2 tablespoons raw almond butter (not peanut butter; it’s overpowering)
    • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice, plus more to taste
    • 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
    • 1 teaspoon shelled hemp seeds
    • Pinch of natural salt
    • 1 cup (125g) ice cubes
    • 1 date, pitted and soaked

    Directions:

    Throw everything into your Ninja blender and blast on high speed for 30 to 60 seconds, until smooth and creamy. Tweak lime juice to taste.

    Protein Powder Tips:

    The easiest way to incorporate protein powder into your routine is to blend it into a smoothie. Look for products composed of organic, raw, sprouted ingredients and made without additives, preservatives, or sweeteners. I find that with all protein powders, as regards flavor and texture, less is more. I
    start with 1 teaspoon and add gradually.
