Ingredients

  • 1 ripe D'Anjou or Bartlett pear, cored and roughly diced
  • 1 cup frozen cranberries
  • 1 cup frozen mango chunks
  • 1 1/4 cups Silk Unsweetened Original Soymilk or Coconutmilk
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons peeled and minced fresh ginger, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 to 2 Medjool dates, pitted (optional, to sweeten)*

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients, except for the dates, to a high-speed blender. Blend on high until smooth. Taste. Enjoy as is or, for a sweeter smoothie, add 1 or 2 pitted dates and blend again.

Notes

*If your dates are firm, as opposed to soft and sticky, soak them in hot water for 30 minutes before blending.
