This Ginger, Pear, and Spinach Shake recipe is sweet with a surprising kick (and lots of nutrients!) to help you power up for the day. You can substitute 1 cup of freshly squeezed orange juice for some of the water in the recipe or throw in a handful of cashews for more texture and protein. Try chilling this ginger-pear shake in the refrigerator for 20 minutes before serving if you want a more cooling effect. Contributed by Alexandra Jamieson, from Vegan Cooking for Dummies.*
