This easy Pear Smoothie is packed with deliciousness and health. It’s spiced with ginger and cinnamon and sweetened with dates. You can make this vegan high protein beverage within minutes with a handful of ingredients.
My backyard tree is blooming with green pear this season and we have been enjoying this organic fruit thoroughly.
Therefore, this idea of pear smoothie struck me since we all love it. Moreover, I blend smoothies everyday so this time pears had to be the star ingredient.
This juicy fruit is crunchy, sweet, tart and so satisfying. It’s amazing when consumed at the right time. I like it when it’s a bit hard. I think at that time it tastes best when its still slightly hard and green.
This time I wanted to go with a simpler and a quick recipe and hence I came up with this vegan pear smoothie.
I must have posted hundreds of smoothie recipes by now but every time I am amazed at the fact that it can be created in so many varieties and with new combination every time.
I am so much in love with this smoothie because its cozy yet cool and perfectly flavored with warming spices.
Its consistency is amazingly perfect being not too thick and not too thin and its well balanced sweet.
Hence today I am sharing this pear smoothie recipe.

Pears – these are seasonal and fiber packed. It’s great if constipated. If your pears are soft and very sweet you may skip dates and blend the smooth with the rest of the ingredients. Taste test and then blend dates if desired.
Dates – they are high in fiber and antioxidants. It’s a great natural sweetener with many health benefits.
Unsweetened almond milk – even though any dairy free milk can be used here, I preferred almond milk to keep it light. If you plan to use oat milk then skip dates in the beginning and blend the rest of the ingredients. Depending on your taste you may or may not blend dates.
Ginger – it’s a great digestive and provides a subtle spiced taste in here. Make sure to stick to the measurement or else this smoothie will become too gingery.
Cinnamon – I have used a tiny pinch of it here for my family. However, I like to sprinkle a little more for myself.
Hempseeds – since, I like use to natural protein in my smoothies so instead of store-bought protein powder I added hempseeds. This way it becomes protein rich as well as includes healthy fats.
I am sure you must already be having all the mentioned ingredients so lets quickly scan through the steps.
You will be quite happy and surprise with the end result in many ways.
Its color and taste and quite unique and different. It’s a camouflage of many ingredients and acquires it own unique color.

It tastes best when served immediately. If kept for long it loses it color and taste.
