Almond and Pear Smoothie (4 Way Smoothie)

This pear smoothie couldn’t be more simple.  It only has 3 ingredients but the taste is amazing.  The trick to great tasting simple smoothie is to use ripe sweet fruit otherwise the smoothie just won’t taste good.

Although most of us have access to pears all year round, they are cheaper when they’re in season and if you’re lucky you’ll get access to more varieties.

How To Tell If Pears Are Ripe

Pears ripen after they have been picked.  

Although there are some varieties that I’ve bought in the past that I can leave for a couple of months and remain like little bricks.  They never ripen and I have to throw them away.  

I don’t like that pears can be a bit hit and miss like that so I tend to stick to the same variety of pear.  

Conference pears never seem to let me down.  They ripen consistently, for me usually within a week and they are just the right size with a lovely juicy flesh.

Most fruit becomes squeezable when it’s ripe, but it’s easy for pears to become overripe very quickly if you’re not careful.

The trick to knowing whether pears are ripe is to squeeze them at the very top near the stalk.

If the pear yields up there then it’s probably ripe.  It might also look a little bit shriveled up at the top.

Check out the video below showing you some facts about pears and loads of benefits of the fruit.

Almond and Pear Smoothie

For this almond and pear smoothie, I used whole almonds as I prefer to use whole foods in my smoothies if I can.  

However, the texture of the smoothie is a little bit gritty as a result but the taste is well worth it and it didn’t stop us really enjoying this smoothie.  

Almonds and pear is a unique taste that just can’t be beaten.  

However, if you’d prefer to get a less grainy texture in your smoothie you could either use ground almonds or pre-soak your almonds and remove their skins.

As usual, I recommend you add 2 cups of greens to turn this smoothie into a green smoothie.
