When life hands you blueberries, you make this Blueberry Pear Smoothie! The color alone is beautiful, but this smoothie is good for you too!

I have about a 4 pound bag of frozen blueberries in my freezer that my Mom and I split from our co-op late last summer.

I wanted so badly to make a pie or something sweet but since there is only 21 or so days before I’m heading to North Carolina for a vacation, and then there is the potential I’m going to have to get into a bathing suit (in front of actual people), so I’m sticking to this smoothie thing like a cheap suit!

This blueberry smoothie is my favorite smoothie so far. I know it’s only the second smoothie recipe you’re seeing, but I’ve made smoothies in the past and I honestly reeeeeally liked this one! I threw in all the ingredients that I had on hand into a blender and then I literally chugged a whole glass in 2.2 seconds, if that tells you anything!

And then I got brain freeze. Ouch.

First, here is what you will need. The blueberries should be frozen, and if they have little ice chunks on them, that’s okay… I think they’re still good. Right?

I started off by cutting a pear in half, and then half again.

Then I remove the seeds and core and slice the halves into half. Following me?

And then I cut them into chunks. Doesn’t have to be perfect or anything, but being that I’m a Virgo, mine have to be.

Into your blender toss the ice…

Then I put the top onto my blender and let’er rip.

So pretty!

Since this recipe is for two and I am only one, I bet you’re wondering what I do with the leftovers? I froze them. In a bowl. And then I scrape it up with a spoon into a yummy treat kinda like a yogurt granita– or should I call it a smoorita or gramoothie? Yeah probably not.

If you leave it in the freezer too long, it will get really frozen. So just stick frozen smoothie bowl into another bowl of hot water for 20 or so minutes until slightly thawed.

My girls were tricked into thinking that their after-school snack was a sorbet-ish treat! Because that’s how I roll. I can still say that right? At 30?


Malloree’s face says: “Please make my Momma’s smoothie!”
