PEAR, BLUEBERRY & OATMEAL BREAKFAST SMOOTHIE
5 Min. Prep Time
Makes 2 Servings
This is the ultimate breakfast smoothie, combining pear, oats, blueberries, and milk. Think of it as a hearty bowl of oatmeal packed into an easy, mix-and-go beverage. The smoothie requires no added sugar, thanks to the sweetness of the fruit, and the cinnamon is a perfect complement to the other flavors.
1 large, ripe USA Pear, such as Comice or Anjou
1 cup (237 mL) Always Fresh Farms, fresh blueberries
2 cups (474 mL) milk or milk alternative
½ cup (119 mL) quick-cooking oats
1 teaspoon (5 mL) cinnamon
Place all of the ingredients into a blender and puree at high speed until smooth and creamy.
