  • 2 pears - chopped
  • 1 tbsp cacao nibs
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tsp lucuma powder

It’s always surprising how spinach can sneak into a sweet recipe so subtly. Even with all the new greens on the scene, spinach is still the powerhouse it was in Popeye’s heyday. Pears bring the sweetness and flavonols. Almond butter, cacao nibs, and caramelly lucuma powder make this smoothie rich and sweet as a cookie — a protein and nutrient-packed cookie, that is! Drink your dessert for breakfast, or anytime.
