Pear Ginger Smoothie Recipe

We’ve always been a bit leery of drinking warm smoothies. Isn’t it then more a soup than smoothie? But we got over our preconceived notions pretty quick after a friend made this for us during a recent snowstorm (yes, Vancouver tends to get snowstorms February and March – just when everybody’s getting excited about spring!). This smoothie is delicious, filling, and warmed us from head to toe so we’re delighted to share the recipe with you!




  • 1 tsp peeled ginger
  • 2 peeled and sliced pears (any type)
  • 2 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tbsp pure Canadian maple syrup
  • 1.5 cups unsweetened almond milk

Blend all the ingredients. If you have a Vitamix, blend on high for four minutes (the power of the machine will heat the ingredients). If you have a standard blender, blend until smooth then transfer to a pot and heat on the stove until the smoothie warms up.


Enjoy and stay warm!
