Spring Pear Smoothie


One sip of this refreshing Spring Pear Smoothie can make all your worries go away…. at least for a moment.

Pears are one of the most underrated fruits out there, in my opinion. I have a feeling it has to do with how difficult it can be to find a ripe one and enjoy it before it goes bad. Reminds me of the avocado and this cute drawing from Simon Drew.

Its true: The window of perfection is short, yet if you time it right it’s spectacular! And trust me, it’s worth giving it a shot for this pear smoothie.

How to ripen pears easily

Oftentimes grocery stores only sell hard pears that take a week+ to ripen. Look for ones that don’t have any cuts or bruises since those will go bad real quick.

Store in a brown bag

To speed up the ripening process, I put my pears in a brown paper bag and close tightly. As the pears ripen, a hormone known as ethylene is produced and emitted as a gas that is now trapped in the bag. This allows the fruit to ripen faster and more evenly than it would if kept in a plastic bag where air can’t circulate, or out in the open where ethylene can’t accumulate.

Health benefits of a Pear Smoothie

Using plant-based whole foods in your smoothies will exponentially increase the health benefits. These are the most natural, nutrient-dense foods on earth and are easy for our body to absorb the vitamins and minerals from them when blended.

In this Pear Smoothie you’ll get incredible nutrients such as:

Pears: Pears are especially rich in folate, vitamin C, copper, and potassium. They’re also a good source of polyphenol antioxidants.

Peaches: Peaches are low in calories and packed with minerals and vitamins such as antioxidants and vitamin C which are required for the building of connective tissue inside the human body.

Spinach: Spinach is an extremely nutrient-rich vegetable according to Healthline. It packs high amounts of carotenoids, vitamin C, vitamin K, folic acid, iron, and calcium.
