Breakfast Smoothie with Cranberries and Pears
Tis the season for fresh cranberries and Asian pears, so I love to enjoy this combo as a cranberry pear smoothie.
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. However, it is 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.
