Add in a vanilla powder or extract to make it even more decadent. Personally, I prefer vanilla powder – or even vanilla protein powder – over extract. For me, vanilla extract has a bit too much bite in it.

I love using beans as the vegetable base thickener in smoothies because their mild flavor doesn’t compete with the other flavors. Beans also add a lot of fiber and protein to the smoothie which help you stay stay feeling full for longer.

Health benefits

The skin of pears contains at least three to four times as many phytonutrients as the flesh. Whether you are eating them whole or blending them in smoothies be sure to have the skin, too!

Pears are a very good source of dietary fiber and a good source of copper, vitamin C and vitamin K.

Pears have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant health benefits. Because of their high fiber content, pears might help protect against the development of type 2 diabetes.

Almonds are one of the lowest calories nuts (tied with cashews) at 160 calories per one ounce. They have more calcium than any other nut, 9 grams of monounsaturated (heart-healthy) fats, 6 grams of protein, and 3.5 grams of fiber per serving.

Beans are loaded with protein and fiber making them beneficial for the digestive tract, blood sugar regulation, and cardiovascular system. The amount of protein and fiber per serving varies on the type of bean. Any of the “small” beans (small white, small red, black, red kidney beans) will give you about 14 grams of fiber and 8 grams of fiber per cup – at only 70 calories. That’s about half the daily recommendation of fiber for women.
