What’s in this yummy smoothie?

  • Bartlett pear: They are also known as Williams pears. When ripe, these pears are juicy, have a soft texture, and sweet, slightly tart flavor. Plus, they are good source of vitamin C, fiber, and iron.
  • Frozen ripe banana: It helps sweeten the drink and gives it a creamy texture too. In addition, it is high in fiber and potassium.
    • I always keep peeled ripe bananas in my freezer to make smoothies.
  • Baby spinach: Is perfect to add to smoothies because of the tender texture, mild flavor, and it’s full of nutritious benefits such vitamins A and C, iron, and magnesium.
  • Ground cinnamon: It gives this drink a bit of warming spiciness.

  • Unsweetened almond milk: It’s smooth and a little nutty in flavor too. Since it’s dairy-free, it’s great for those that are lactose intolerant or on a vegan diet.
    • Substitute with another milk of your choice if you like such a dairy milk, oat milk, or coconut milk.
  • Pure vanilla extract: It adds a light sweet vanilla note to the smoothie that complements the fruit and cinnamon perfectly.
  • Pure maple syrup: This ingredient adds richer sweet notes to the smoothie.

I love this smoothie so much! If I don't have frozen bananas I'll use frozen zucchini and it tastes just as good. I also sometimes cut the maple syrup in half if the pear was really ripe. Overall great recipe!

I had one lonely pear in the refrigerator after making a pear tart so I made this smoothie for breakfast this morning. Sooooo good. I added pears to this week's shopping list for the sole reason of making this again (and again!) this week. Fantastic recipe!
