|Vanilla Pear Smoothie|
I am currently in love with this smooth, subtle smoothie. It's one of those things you sip and savor. A definite keeper for a great go-to meal on the go.
And the perks are, that this buttery fruit can deliver up to 6 grams of fiber, including pectin, which lowers bad cholesterol. Can I get a woot? And the juicy flesh contains vitamin C and copper, essential for the formation of red blood cells. All the more reason to take advantage of this delicate fruit.
