Smoothie Sunday: Ginger Pear Smoothie
I originally thought of using this flavor combo for the oatmeal smoothie, but the pears I bought weren’t ripe the morning my overnight oatmeal was ready. So I decided to wait and have it be its own smoothie. I’m glad I did wait, because the pear flavor, while yummy, is rather delicate, and would have been way overpowered by the oatmeal. This way is better because you can actually taste the flavors being featured.
Ginger Pear Smoothie:
- 2 pears, cored
- 1 5.3 oz container greek yogurt (vanilla or pear)
- 6 ice cubes
- ¼ – ½ tsp. ground ginger
- Pinch of salt
- Cinnamon sugar to taste
Depending on how good your blender is, you may want to remove the skin after coring. I did, but pear skin is soft, so you may not need to. Blend the first 3 ingredients until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients and blend a couple of minutes to make sure everything is thoroughly mixed. Make sure to taste as you go and add sweetener accordingly. Once finished blending, pour into a tall glass and enjoy!
