With only 5 ingredients, not including the ice, this Avocado Pear Smoothie can be put together in about 2 minutes. We want to make your healthy lifestyle as easy and delicious as possible.
You want to choose a very ripe pear that has a thin skin, and a soft, juicy bite such as a Bartlett pear. These types of pears, when ripe, will blend easily in almost any blender. See, you can put pears in smoothies!
Note that unlike other fruits you can add to smoothies, pears won’t freeze well, so chop them just prior to adding to retain their juicy freshness, and avoid any browning.
Put a “spring” in your step with the health benefits of avocados and the sweetness and nutrients of pears in this honeyed, lush smoothie.
