Cinnamon Pear Green Smoothie
Is it just me or are we in a bit of a weird in between season as far as fruit goes? I am finding myself buying apples and pears every week (and of course bananas) but not much else is coming home with me from the fruit department. Grapes are super expensive right now, citrus isn’t really in yet and berries are long gone. So, pears and apples (and bananas) it is then. And that’s totally ok.
(It’s a good thing we love them.)
Since I’ve been buying a ton of pears and apples, I am finding that with so many on hand my pears are getting real ripe and sweet real fast. The other morning I was in the mood for a green smoothie, but not really in the mood for the green smoothie I usually make. I wanted something a little different. Liz has me obsessed with adding cinnamon to my smoothies so with that in mind and some ripe pears on hand I had to put this tasty little concoction together. It turned out pretty amazing and I made it again for my daughter this weekend.
I introduce you to my current favorite smoothie – Cinnamon Pear Green Smoothie!
Cinnamon Pear Green Smoothie
- 1/2 cup ice
- 1/2 cup vanilla low fat Greek yogurt
- 1 (ripe) Bartlett pear, cut in chunks
- 1 big handful fresh spinach leaves
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Place ingredients into blender. Blend for 30 seconds or until smooth.

Yes…I dislike this “in between” time. I think its just another reason I love summer! What a fun mix up on the usual green smoothie. Sounds delicious
it’s a weird time for fruit!! Glad I’m not the only one who feels that way 🙂 I made it again yesterday and added apple too. It’s a nice change! Hope you had a good weekend!!
Oooooo…I love the sound of this one!!
YES TO CINNAMON!!! So funny that was what drew me to this recipe – lol!!! I am honored that I inspired you!!! It’s usually the other way around. xoxo
Great way to start the day! I am hoping to get a few pears from my pear trees on the ranch this fall and I will definitely be trying this!
Love the cinnamon, just what a fall smoothie needs!
I agree that it’s a hard time to decide what fruit we’re supposed to be eating right now! I love these fall flavors!
How sad is it that I don’t think I’ve had ONE single pear this fall?! Can’t believe it! So glad I ran across your smoothie, this looks perfect and will remind me to get pears at the store! 🙂
I have a new rule that I never look at the price of fruit this time of the year. That way I won’t pass out when I realize how expensive it is. I’m lucky, my daughter actually works in the produce department so she gives me a heads up when things look good. I’m definitely more a summer fruit girl, but I could live off pears alone so this is right up my alley.
We totally are in a weird place with fruit. I kinda hate this time of year just because of it too. Apples and pears are definitely not in my top faves but this smoothie does look pretty good!
What a great green smoothie! Love the cinnamon pear combination!
Great usage of pears, Aggie, and I love the taste of cinnamon there for fall flavor!
so perfect for fall! yum!

I want to thank you for this delicious recipe. The rest of your green smoothies recipes sounds good to, but this one with the cinnamon surprised me with his taste.
