Pear Lemonade Superfood Smoothie Recipe

For this last week of Lemonade Smoothie Month, I decided to use a fruit that I seem to pass by in the store all the time, pear. Here is my Pear Lemonade Smoothie recipe that I am sure you will love!

Please share this wonderful recipe:

So far this month we’ve had a Carrot Lemonade, a Blueberry Lemonade and an Orange Lemonade. This pear smoothie rounds out the month nicely.

I don’t really know why I ignore the baskets of pears at the market. It seems like I go for apples over pears even though to me they seem like they are part of the same family. I also have to admit I don’t know a lot about pears – they seem less sweet than apples. If you are as new to pears as I am, check out this guide about the different varieties of pears. At my market they had bartlett, anjou and bosc and after discussion with the farmer, I went with bartlett for this smoothie as I wanted to keep it on the sweet side.

Check out some of the health benefits of pears from fitsugar:

  • Pears are high in fiber. One medium-sized pear contains six grams of fiber.
  • Pears contain a fair amount of vitamins A, C, K, B2, B3, and B6 and they also contain folate. Pears also contain calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper, and manganese.
  • The hydroxycinnamic acid found in pears is also associated with preventing stomach and lung cancer.
  • Wow this one is pretty neat – pears are a hypo-allergenic fruit. That means those with food sensitivities can usually eat pears with no adverse effects.
  • Pear skin contains Quercetin which helps prevent cancer and artery damage that can lead to heart problems.

For this smoothie I decided to go with pomegranate powder and flax seeds as the superfoods. You can certainly add other superfoods like chia or acai, or leave out the superfoods if you don’t have them on hand.

      Love that idea Sarah! Yea, I don’t know why I pass up pears in the supermarket, I guess I just don’t eat them enough to think about them but no more -now they will be regular additions to my smoothie lineup :)

      Hi Stefania – glad you liked the smoothie! It’s not green in the photo because I take the photo before I add the spinach. Otherwise every photo I take will be green :)

      Thanks! So glad you are here with us :) All my smoothies are green smoothies, always stuff some spinach in there – won’t change the taste. Also great for kids too to help get them veggies without them realizing it heh.

    Allen, this blog is amazing! Since I’ve started juicing I put lemons in everything because I love lemonade, so the thought I can incorporate them into my smoothies makes my heart go pitter-patter! I will probably also try to turn this into a juice because why the heck not! Thanks for the wonderful recipes, I’m always looking for new combos to switch up my regular juicing routine.

      Thanks so much for the compliment Stephanie! Yea lemons totally rock, my favorite citrus for sure. I have 4 lemonade smoothies so make sure to check those out too – and yes, I think this would be a great juice too. So glad you are part of our community Stephanie!
