As you make and enjoy your latest smoothie recipe don’t forget the nutrition you are adding to your diet. This strawberry pear smoothie recipe uses pears that are a very good source of both vitamin C and dietary fiber along with some Potassium and Calcium. Strawberries also have lots of vitamin C, fiber, and Potassium so this smoothie lets you “double down” on nutrition.
Its also easy to turn this strawberry pear smoothie treat into a nutrition powerhouse just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
In your favorite blender mix:
2 sliced pears
1 frozen banana, peeled and sliced
cup frozen strawberries
1 Tbsp. Chia seed
1/2 cup filtered water
This renders a pretty thick smoothie so you can add either a bit more water, or some ice cubes to thin the mix.
