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. Need any more reasons to blend up this pear green smoothie? 😉
