Strawberry Pear Smoothie

By now you probably know that I love my smoothies!  

It's something that I look at as a healthy indulgence.  Reminds me of the milkshakes I dearly loved growing up.  But who can have those all the time?  Not this girl!  So my wonderful thick and creamy fruit smoothies are the best alternative.

Typically a quick breakfast for me, but I also been know to have one on a hot afternoon.  The weather is changing and we are getting the dreaded "Santa Ana" winds around here.  They create havoc with my allergies, but they are a sure sign that fall is on the way.  

With that come different seasonal fruits.  Apples and pears are bountiful in the stores right now and I try to create my smoothies with in-season fruits.  So I grabbed some pears, and some frozen strawberries that I saved from the ripe summer crops and whipped my latest smoothie creation.  The pears lend a light sweet flavor that are perfect next to the superfruit strawberries.  Oh yum!  

Full of vitamins and antioxidants....and just plain delicious!  You have to try this one, you'll love it!

Here are some other wonderful smoothie flavors to try as well.
