Equipment

Ingredients

  • 2 cups diced pears (2 large or 4 small)
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 2 bananas (can use frozen)
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup almond milk
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

  • Dice the pears and bananas, and add all the ingredients to a blender. I like to add the liquids first, then the soft ingredients, then the harder ingredients on top, as I find that this helps the blender to blend more evenly.
  • Blend for a few minutes, until you have created a smooth mixture. You might have to stop the blender a few times to scrape down the sides.
  • Pour the pear smoothie into glasses or a jug, then serve!

Notes

  • Use frozen ripe bananas for extra sweetness, and to ensure that the smoothie is properly chilled.
  • The blending is much easier if you add the liquid ingredients first, and the hard ingredients last.
  • Leftover green pear smoothie can be stored in a sealed jug or bottle in a refrigerator for up to 2 days. The smoothie will most likely separate over time. If this happens, you simply have to shake the smoothie until it’s an evenly incorporated drink again, then serve.
