Raspberry Almond Pear Smoothie

(Pictured with my homemade granola recipe)

I have made a discovery when it comes to smoothies: The right combination of fruit can make a huge difference. I have found that pairing a strong, tart flavored fruit with a mild and sweet fruit makes a winning combination.

Take for example blueberry. I personally find a smoothie with just blueberries “dull” tasting. However, adding a bit of orange juice or a whole orange makes the flavors “pop”.

Frozen strawberries can be bold and tart, but combining them with a mild and sweet banana is a classic combination.

The same applies with this raspberry pear smoothie. Pears are sweet and mild while raspberries are tart and in-your-face. The almond flavor adds interest, making this a unique and exciting smoothie. Let me know if you agree!

Raspberry Almond Pear Smoothie

  • 1 1/2 cups plain yogurt
  • A fist-sized amount of frozen raspberries
  • A fist-sized amount of frozen pears (about one whole pear)
  • 1 T. almond butter
  • 1 scoop protein powder
  • A few drops of pure almond extract (can substitute vanilla)
  • A few drops of stevia extract (or your favorite sweetener)
  • 6 ice cubes (this will make a thick “soft serve” smoothie- omit if you want it to be drinkable)

Blend until smooth. Makes 2 servings.
