Pear Smoothie Recipes

Fruit Smoothies

You can use fresh or canned pears for these pear smoothie recipes. Similar to peaches in regards to smoothies, canned or fresh pears mix well with other smoothie ingredients. Because pears have a somewhat mild taste, these smoothies have a tendency to lose that “pear” taste when blended with other fruits and vegetables. So if you want to taste just pear, be cautious of what you add to your smoothie.

Try some pear varieties and share your favorite pear smoothies below.

About Pears

Harvested pears are still green and not fully ripe. They ripen at room temperature and ripen quicker when sitting next to bananas. Placing pears in refrigerators slows the ripening process, however. To check a pear’s ripeness, press on its stem end to gauge its firmness. If it feels slightly soft and flexible, then it is ripe. If it resists pressure from your finger, let it sit out for a little longer.

Musical instruments such as oboes and flutes use pear tree wood in their construction. Pear wood makes excellent furniture and firewood, and is favored for cooking spoons because it is so mild and will not alter the flavor of food.

Pears are excellent sources of fiber, B vitamins, vitamin C, calcium and potassium, and eating them is a truly delicious way to increase your daily intake of these nutrients.
