Blackberry & Pear.

A delightful combination of tart blackberries and sweet pear…

  • 1 ripe pear – cored
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • Small handful almonds
  • ½ cup iced water

During the autumn you can get blackberries, but they are often quite tart. This recipe combines the tartness of the berries with the sweetness of a ripe pear. This turns out to be a great combination – producing a thick and very tasty smoothie that has a little edge. Truly wonderful!

You can use either almond milk, or do as I do – just pop a small handful of almonds in the blender first with some water and give it a 30 second whizz.

I quite like bits in my smoothie – so actually under blend this one. So you’re left with bits of almond and the blackberry seeds floating in the mixture. Your mileage will vary :)
