Ashley Melillo | Blissful Basil
ripe D'Anjou or Bartlett pear, cored and roughly diced
frozen mango chunks
Silk Unsweetened Original Soymilk or Coconutmilk
1 to 2
peeled and minced fresh ginger, to taste
to 2 Medjool dates, pitted (optional, to sweeten)*
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.
*If your dates are firm, as opposed to soft and sticky, soak them in hot water for 30 minutes before blending.
