Today we are welcoming fall with a punch of cinnamon. This Pear Mango Olive Oil Smoothie is a refreshing and healthy morning treat, giving you the best start to the day. Adding olive oil to your smoothie may seem a little odd at first, but you can’t knock it until you try it. Though most often used in cooking, olive oil is in fact the healthiest when used in low or no-heat recipes, like smoothies.
The great thing about smoothies is that you can choose your favorite ingredients to personalize the flavor - we have gone for the delicious fall pairing of pear and mango. There is only one rule though, never forget to add a dash of olive oil, since it not only enhances the flavor and improves the texture of your smoothie, but also imparts multiple health benefits.
Rich in antioxidants and vitamins, we recommend adding one or two tablespoons of kyoord olive oil into your diet for a healthier lifestyle and disease prevention – and this recipe is the perfect way to sneak it in! Olive oil boosts the flavor and enhances the nutritional properties of the other ingredients while improving the texture of the drink itself.
Olive oil not only promotes heart health, weight loss, and brain functionality, it will also give you glowing skin and luscious locks. Paired with chia seeds, which contain large amounts of fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, high-quality protein, and several essential minerals and antioxidants, this drink tastes good, looks good, and is good for you.
