Cinnamon Pear Green Smoothie

Life is all about balance. This is something I’ve been working on a lot lately, as I mentioned last week. Balance between work and play. Balance between saving and splurging. Even eating is a balancing act. I’m always striving to strike a healthy balance between eating a well rounded, nutritious diet with the occasional indulgence, like a decadent dessert or some amazing cheese. I do this not only for my own body but also to set a good example for my children. I try to lead by example and each day I see my healthy habits reflected in my children.

Each morning my girls and I start our day out with a green smoothie. It’s really the only green food that will pass Molly’s lips but I couldn’t choose a better item for her to accept. Leafy greens like spinach or kale and antioxidant-filled fruits blended together with calcium rich almond milk. We love Silk Unsweetened Almond Milk and how it helps support our healthy lifestyle. In our morning smoothies or over cereal, it’s delicious.

So I bet you can imagine how thrilled I was to recently discover the new Silk Almond Coconut Blend. It’s a wonderful blend of both almond milk AND coconut milk. It comes in both sweetened or unsweetened versions which is a big plus in my book and it’s only 35 calories a cup! We recently tried the Silk Unsweetened Almond Coconut Blend and were blown away. My whole family loved it. It added such a flavorful twist to a bowl of cereal and added a tropical feel to our green smoothies. Nutrition is always of the utmost importance to me closely followed by taste and this product definitely fits both bills.

Silk Almond Coconut Blend has 50% more calcium than dairy milk, is cholesterol free and made only with non-gmo crops which is hugely important to me. This is powerful plant-based nutrition! But you don’t have to take my word for it. Why don’t you try it for yourself? Check out all the tasty, good for you products Silk has to offer and even get a coupon! CLICK HERE I know you’ll love it as much as we did.

Once you get your coupon you can give this tasty green smoothie a try! Pears and banana add sweetness to tender spinach, while Silk Almond Coconut Blend adds a tropical feel. A touch of cinnamon is the finishing touch and a great way to start every day!

Enjoy!
