Sweet Pear Smoothie Recipe


This fiber-rich pear green smoothie is perfectly creamy and sweet with a hint of cinnamon; great for blending up in the fall and winter to make the most of in-season produce.

Winter’s Delight: Pears

During the late fall and winter, it get a little harder to find fresh, seasonal fruits to blend into green smoothies. Not impossible, just harder. And while we often rely on frozen fruit of all kinds, we really love being able to support local farmers by using in-season ingredients. Pears, one of our favorites, are a low-calorie fruit packed with fiber, folic acid, vitamin A and C, and are plentiful during the cooler months of the year. Plus a ripe pear adds a delicious, floral sweetness that’s hard to beat!

Using fruits and greens that are high in fiber will help keep you fuller, longer. The vitamins and minerals in A Sweet Pear can also help your body heal more quickly with extra support for your hair, skin and nails. Adding cinnamon to your daily meal plan regulates your blood sugar levels, reduces harmful cholesterol, and sends a sweet boost to your metabolism.

    One of my fave green smoothies!

  2. Kienna says:

    Was very excited to try this, but was a little disappointed by how overpowering the banana flavour was. Will try again without the frozen banana though as the consistency and colour were quite nice!

    How much protein is in this recipe?

  4. David says:

    I made this smoothie today, and I loved it. It’s delicious.
    But what is the calorie count and/or nutritional info for 16 oz?

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi David,

      We personally don’t count calories, so we don’t include them in our recipes at this time. You’ll find that when you consume more nourishing whole fruits and veggies, you will not only feel full longer, but you’ll also have lessened cravings for high-calorie, nutritionally empty foods. So in the end it balances out. But we know many people would like to have calorie info. Three great resources for tracking calories are Self Nutrition Data, and the phone apps: My Fitness Pal and Lose It.

    I LOVE pears so I’m excited to try this one. Question: How essential is it to add the cinnamon? My teen has been drinking green smoothies with me (YAY!) and isn’t a cinnamon fan. Just wondered if it can be left out or if it is better to substitute something else. #RawkingItIn2017!

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Andrea,

      Of course you can leave the cinnamon out! Our recipes are here to inspire you, so please don’t feel like you need to follow them to a T.

    How many people does this serve?

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Rich,

      Great question! All of our recipes make two (16oz) servings. Perfect for sharing with others, or to save your second serving. Our recipes will keep in your refrigerator for up to two days in an airtight container. Adding a small amount of lemon juice will help preserve all of their green goodness!

      Cheers 🙂

  10. imani walters says:

    loved this recipe so much !

  11. Matija Žagar says:

    I seem to notice that you always use almond milk in your smoothie recepies, but it’s kind of unreachable for me so coud i use normal milk instead? Or is it absolutley necessary?

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Matija,

      We love switching up our liquid bases. So if one of our ingredients like almond milk aren’t available where you are, swap in another option that you love like coconut milk, coconut water, or good old fashion H20. Learn more about our favorite liquid bases here…

      We personally don’t blend with dairy. It’s the one of the highest un-diagnosed food allergies, and can be pretty tough on your digestion. Do you + your body love dairy? If so, go for it! It’s all about finding what works for you!
