Blend up your own pear smoothie recipes! Learn how to blend up your own healthy smoothie recipes for your family and friends!
Many people do not like using bananas in their smoothies. Substituting pears for bananas is one of the great ways to avoid bananas. Use one pear in place of one banana in a smoothie recipe.
Make sure that you purchase fully ripened pears. I find that organic pears are juicier and sweeter than conventional pears.
There was a great sale on conventional pears last week. But I didn’t buy any because they were as hard as a rock! But then I went to the local health food store and bought some organic pears. They were delightfully juicy! You will not be sorry for buying higher quality pears.
Using flavorful, fully ripened pears are a must for a great smoothie.
#2 Buy Bulk
To make great tasting smoothies with pears, save money by buying your organic pears in bulk. If you cannot finish the box of pears that you bought, remove the cores and coarsely chop the pears and freeze for future smoothies.
Enjoy your smoothies!
