I know what you're thinking... Pear? In a Smoothie? I thought so too. I was hesitant to try this recipe at first, but I decided to give it a go since it's pear season here at the moment; so not only are they cheap but they're also at their highest nutritional quality. I'm so glad I tried it - it's the perfect combination of flavours, subtle but super creamy and very, very good!
Pears are high in fibre and vitamin C and contain vast amounts of antioxidants to help prevent high blood pressure. Did you know, they can also help lower cholesterol levels?!
The actual pear flavour is quite subtle but it combines so nicely with all the other ingredients, you'll love it.
Feel free to substitute with any milk of your choice (cows milk, almond, etc.) you could also use either our At Health Naturally Vanilla or Naturally Naked Protein - its entirely up to you.
Also the Rolled Oats are optional but if you're having this smoothie as a meal replacement they're a particularly good option - they have so many health benefits but the main reason is because of their fibre content which helps to keep you feeling satisfied.
When I have a smoothie, it's almost always as a meal replacement so I need that equal balance of high protein, carbs and good fats to ensure it keeps me feeling satisfied :)
