Ingredients

  • 1 lb. 2 medium ripe bosc pears, peel on, cut into chunks
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 7 ounce container plain unsweetened Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger*
  • 1 cup ice

Instructions 

  • Place all ingredients into a blender and mix until smooth. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Notes

  • *1 tablespoon of freshly grated ginger root provides a flavor that you can taste but it's not overpowering. If you're unsure about it, try using 1-2 teaspoons first and add more if desired.
  • I store my fresh ginger in a zip top bag in freezer. When I'm ready to use it, I grate the desired amount with my Microplane grater peel and all!
  • You can use your favorite variety of pear in this smoothie, but I recommend Bosc pears as they're even juicier and sweeter than Bartlett pears.
  • This smoothie is plenty sweet with no added sweetener. If you'd like a sweeter smoothie, use vanilla Greek yogurt or add the desired amount of honey or maple syrup.
  • Make this pear smoothie dairy free by using dairy free yogurt. I love Sigi's plant-based coconut Greek yogurt in vanilla cinnamon flavor.
