Hello dear smoothie lovers! 🙋🏻 Today I’d like to share with you a very simple but super delicious banana and pear 🍌 ➕ 🍐 smoothie recipe.

This smoothie is perfect for breakfast or can easily replace a meal at any time of the day. A great thing is that the banana and pear smoothie is rich in dietary fibre so you won’t get hungry too fast.

Ingredients
  • 2 bananas broken into chunks
  • 1 pear
  • 1 cup low fat plain yogurt
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1 tsp honey or maple syrup to taste
  • 1 tsp cinnamon for decoration
  • peppermint leaves for decoration
Instructions
  1. Peel and slice your bananas and the pear. Put them into the blender and add the yogurt, the sweetener to taste and the vanilla extract (optional).

  2. Blend everything until nice and smooth. Pour your smoothie in a serving glass and decorate with a pinch of cinnamon and mint leaves.

  3. If you wish, you can also add a couple of spoons of your favorite seeds, oatmeal or a spoonful of superfoods to boost the nutritional value of your smoothie. Just add the mentioned ingredients into the blender jar before whizzing.

Recipe Notes

You can replace the plain yogurt, vanilla extract and sweetener with Alpro Vanilla soygurt which already comes sweetened and contains vanilla extract. This will make your job even easier and save you some precious time.
