Have you ever considered using fruit that’s rather uncommon in the realm of smoothies?
My find last summer was fresh mulberries and this spring it was pear. Yep — pear!
A slight bit of back story is warranted here — a neighbor of mine has a huge pear tree that he basically ignores. Last summer, I watched many lovely, large pears rot all over the ground and eventually I couldn’t take it anymore. I knocked on his door, introduced myself and asked if he would mind if I picked pears.
“Go right ahead if you want them! I certainly don’t,” he told me. And so, I went picking for days and ended up with so many pears that I had no clue what to do with them.
Since I am highly committed to not wasting any fruit that I buy or pick, I decided to try freezing the pears in slices and saving them for a ‘rainy day’ rather than let them rot.
I ended up with 3 bags of frozen pears and then forgot about them in my freezer until March when I realized I needed to clean it out from older food.
Enter smoothies… detox smoothies, that is!
And so I want to share with you this really tasty, wonderful detox smoothie recipe…
