You will not believe that the Cookies and Cream smoothie is actually good for you. You may even find yourself coming back for seconds. Lucuma powder, which comes from the Peruvian Lucuma plant, is a low glycemic sweetener and has a unique caramel, maple flavor. It adds the perfect natural sweetness to really make this smoothie come to life.
Pro Tip: For ultimate sweetness, wait until the pears are extra ripe. The longer you wait, the sweeter they will get.
