Yellow Pear and Spinach Smoothie

Pear and spinach smoothie from Love and Lentils

I used forelle pears for this smoothie, as they are cute and adorable and bite-size. Okay fine, not only because of that, also they are quite sweet and have a bit of a cinnamon spice flavor (making them perfect for kid-friendly snacks or smoothies). This variety is only available from about September until December, so use another kind of nicely ripe yellow pear at other times or if unavailable. I call this smoothie my winter blend; because of the pear variety and also because it’s not a freezing cold drink. If you want to make it colder, go ahead and add a few ice cubes. This makes 1 large or 2 moderate smoothies. Recipe and photos contributed by Sophia Zergiotis of Love and Lentils.
