You are going to love this pear smoothie recipe, because it is packed with nutritious ingredients and is so simple to make. It makes a delicious breakfast that will keep you satiated all morning. The fiber from the pears and the banana slows digestion, which helps to keep you feeling full. The cinnamon provides a solid dose of antioxidants and can also help to lower blood sugar levels.
How to Make a Spiced Pear Smoothie
To make this homemade spiced pear smoothie recipe, simply:
- Add all of the ingredients – pears, banana, milk, yogurt, honey, cinnamon and nutmeg – to a blender.
- Blend until smooth and creamy.
Pro Tip: When adding your smoothie ingredients to your blender, always add the liquid (in this recipe, the milk) first near the blades. Doing this will help your blender to run a bit more easily
Possible Recipe Variations
This homemade smoothie recipe is very flexible with regards to variations. For example, feel free to…
- Swap in non-dairy milk: I generally use dairy milk when making smoothies, but you can use any kind of milk you like. Unsweetened almond, coconut, soy, hemp, oat, or any other type of plant-based milk are all terrific options.
- Use a different sweetener: Rather than honey, you can substitute another natural and unrefined sweetener, such as maple syrup or agave nectar. Alternatively, you can throw in one or two pitted dates instead of a liquid sweetener.
- Stir in some collagen: Adding collagen peptides to smoothies majorly boosts their protein content. Collagen is also known to improve the condition of skin, hair, nails, joints, ligaments and is great for gut health. I recommend using one that is all-natural, unflavored and unsweetened.
Those are just a few suggestions, so feel free to experiment with whatever ingredient swaps or additions that sound good to you.
My Favorite Hack for Making Smoothies
I’m sure you know by now that drinking smoothies on a regular basis is super beneficial for your health. However, many people don’t drink smoothies often enough because they don’t have the time to shop for ingredients, measure them out, and chop them up. If you struggle to drink smoothies regularly due to lack of time, I highly recommend signing up for a smoothie delivery service.
Based on my research, my top choice for healthy smoothie delivery is SmoothieBox. SmoothieBox sends everything you need to make nutritionally-balanced smoothies (in pre-portioned, ready-to-blend smoothie pouches) straight to your doorstep.
