As anybody unfortunate enough to have lived with me knows, I’m not a morning person. Until a few years ago, I found breakfast really difficult, especially if I was on the run. I usually just skipped it altogether.
Now, I manage to get some morning sustenance with a smoothie. What a great, healthy start to the day, so quick and easy, and much better than shop-bought offerings. My smoothie maker has become as indispensable as pots and pans.
One of my favourites is this Apple, Pear and Raspberry smoothie; it can be prepared in 30 seconds-1 minute. Raspberries will keep in the freezer for a few weeks. Just grab them out and throw them in!
I have a small appetite in the mornings but this always keeps me full until lunchtime.
Pear and Raspberry Smoothie
- 1 pear
- A big handful (around 8-10) raspberries
- 1 glass of apple juice
- A big dollop of honey
- Two big dollops of natural yogurt
Whizz all the ingredients together for about 20 seconds until smooth.
And that’s it!
This is just one suggestion for a pear smoothie. Does anyone have any more?
