Pear Smoothie with banana and Cinnamon

Pear Smoothie

Getting my smoothie fix this week with pears! Sweet and delicious pears, a low calorie, high-fiber fruit is now the star of the season! Lots of healthy nutrients are in these guys; antioxidants, fiber, minerals and vitamins, and even if that doesn’t excite you, pears are just juicy and DELISH!

I added half of a frozen banana to my smoothie for the creamy texture.  I forgot to freeze a pear, so I cored and diced a fresh one. I recommend keeping the skin on. I learned that is where most of the fiber comes from.

Pear Smoothie

For this recipe I used vanilla protein powder and even with over 20 grams of protein, the carbs were a little higher than I prefer. It’s that darn banana that bumps up the count! 1/2 banana has about 15 carbs, which doesn’t sound like much, but it adds up when you add multiple pieces of fruit. I used the smallest pear (23 carbohydrates), and really wouldn’t cut either of those ingredients. The combination is rich and sweet and the dash of cinnamon completes this smoothie.

  1. The combination of pear, banana, cinnamon and vanilla sounds wonderful! I have everything to make this right now – looks like I get a delicious breakfast tomorrow! Thank you!

  2. I love smoothies, but have never put a pear in a smoothie! Why the heck haven’t I thought of that?! Pears are delish! Thanks for putting that in my mind. I think it would be nice to sweeten up a green smoothie too.

  3. I love making smoothies with bananas. My mom did this for us way back in the day when I was a young one 😉 I like to keep carbs low too but fruit always adds carbs and sugars to your diet. They aren’t th bad for you ones though!

  4. Sounds delicious and perfect for a quick breakfast on the go. I am waiting for pears, proper pears to arrive here in Hong Kong… must still be on that slow shrimp boat but has not hit port yet… LOL
