Cucumber, pear and ginger, Smoothie or juice?

Jugo pera, jengibre, pepino.p&v

 I do not why there is common belief that smoothies and juices are good just in the morning. Take them whenever you feel thirsty, a little bit hungry or when you need an energy boost.

 The only thing that you have to be careful with smoothies is that you could easily overdo the calories in a drink. That means that a smoothie on its own may stand for a complete meal. So, if you have, let’s say for breakfast, a smoothie with almond butter, kale, protein powder, oats, etc. THAT will be your breakfast.

 If you have something  light, as this recipe, you could add something more to your meal. Smoothies are a great way to include vegetables and super powers to our body. They fill us with vitamins, minerals and great fiber.

I love to add ginger to my smoothies, I like the spicy kick you get at the end. And it is also full of benefits. Did you know it is good fighting nausea, migraines, colds and flu? Cucumbers also are a great addition to any diet or juice or smoothie, the are so good to our brain and fight pretty well against inflammation and stress. Pears are at their best in October, so why not drink vitamins and minerals that will make our face glow? This smoothie tastes great with a drizzle of maple syrup at the top, it tricks my brain into thinking I just had an amazing dessert.

Technically this is a smoothie because it has all the fiber of the fruits and veggies, but it is so light it feels like a juice. It does not matter how you call it while you drink it and taste it.
