Cinnamon-Spiced Sunflower Seed and Apple-Pear Smoothie

To complement this flavor and enhance it, you can pair them with fruits that offer a contrasting or harmonious taste. Adding cinnamon can add warmth and spice to the overall flavor. Here's a sunflower seed-based fruit salad with cinnamon

  • 1 ripe pear, cored and diced
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
