How to Make a Pear Smoothie
When it comes to fruits, pears don’t have the strongest taste on their own so it’s good to combine them with other fruits such as blueberries, bananas, mangoes, or pineapples. The beauty of pears is they contain a lot of liquid so you will find you don’t need much liquid for your smoothies and you can add semi-solid ingredients such as yogurt. When blending pear smoothies add fruits first, secondly add liquids. A few of the most common liquids are almond milk and fruit juices. Thirdly, you can add items such as yogurt, nut butter, seeds, and spices.
