Living where we do, we are fortunate that we have a wide selection of food stores to choose from. Within 5 miles of the house, we have 4 supermarkets (Publix, Safeway, Whole Foods, and Fresh Market), and 3 fresh produce stands that are open daily plus 1 that shows up in a parking lot on most Sunday mornings.
In short we have the luxury of picking and choosing our fresh produce all year round.
I bring this up because this apple pear smoothie recipe got me thinking about how we bought apples at one produce stand and pears at one of the supermarkets. Only the apples were on the original list but the pears looked so good they had to come home as well.
Anyway, that’s the story of how this post got started. I hope you enjoy it.
In your favorite blender mix:
- 1 Apple seeded/cored and cut in chunks
- Whole Pear seeded/cored and cut in chunks (I used a Bartlett)
- Full Cup cold apple juice
- Optional but good: -1 tbsp.chia seed
If you blender is strong enough, put everything in at once. If not, feed it the apples first, then the pears.
