Creamy Pear Almond Smoothie with Sweet Cinnamon
Prep time
Total time
Sweet earthy pear melds so well with creamy almond in this naturally sweet smoothie. You can double the almond butter for an even creamier shake, or add 1 to 2 tablespoons of your favorite dairy-free protein powder for a extra staying power.
Recipe type: Drinks
Cuisine: American
Serves: 1 serving
  • 1 ripe frozen banana (medium size), broken into chunks
  • ½ ripe pear
  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk, or as needed
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus additional for garnish
  • Pinch salt (omit if using salted almond butter)
  • Pure stevia extract or maple syrup, to taste
  1. Add the banana, pear, almond milk, almond butter, cinnamon, and salt to your blender and puree until smooth.
  2. Taste test, and blend in sweetener to taste, if desired.
  3. Pour in a glass and sprinkle with additional cinnamon, if desired
Tip: If you're blender isn't powerful, make sure the fresh fruit (pears in this case) is closest to the blades, with the frozen fruit on top. This allows those blades to get moving before they hit the tough stuff.
