Cranberry Pear Smoothie

Cranberry Pear Smoothie

Tis the season for fresh cranberries and Asian pears. Your market may have the pears labeled as Korean pears, apple pears or Butterscotch pears. Whatever they are called, they are crisp, juicy and full of flavor. I was never a big pear fan until I tried these and now I look forward to them every year.

This Fall smoothie has a tart kick from the berries and is great for breakfast or just as an afternoon treat. I like my smoothies cold, so I freeze the cranberries ahead of time, but it’s fine to use fresh berries that aren’t cold.

Tip: Bananas get sweeter as they ripen. Keep that in mind as you choose a banana that will be best for your taste buds.
