Honey Pear and Ginger Smoothie
It's about time for a super nutritious recipe so here it is. This recipe is from the Innocent Smoothie recipe book and is a great way to use up some of those end of season pears that are starting to go mushy. This one isn't for ginger haters though as there is quite a ginger presence, but for those who do like it it is divine.
I would recommend grilling your pears a little bit ahead as otherwise they make your smoothie a bit warm. If you don't have time for that add a little ice.
1 pear, peeled, halved and cored
2 tsps honey
Thumbnail size piece fresh ginger
1/4 cup orange juice
3 Tbsps yoghurt
1. Spread honey over the cut side of the pear.
2. Place the pears cut side up in a baking dish and grill in the oven until the honey begins to caramelise.
3. Place everything into a blend and blend until very smooth.
4. Best served cold
