Banana, Pear & Raspberry Smoothie for a lazy weekend!


What do you do for weekend breakfast when you linger in bed a little longer knowing fully well that there is a growing list of chores for every extra few minutes. This was the decision I had to make when I switched the snooze for the second time. Aswin was away, it was cold and I couldn't resist savoring the warm bed for extra few minutes, ok, for an extra hour.

Once we were up and starting with the cleaning and shopping for the week, I quickly made a delicious smoothie with pear, banana that was on the verge of becoming overripe, and fresh, ooh so delicious raspberries that I picked up from the farmer's market yesterday. It was filling and light just right for the day. And I even saved a glass for Aswin :)

1 1/2 cup milk
2 tbspoon honey
1 banana
1 pear
1/4 cup raspberries (save some for garnish)

This is the easy part. Put everything in the blender till it becomes smooth. Pour in glass and garnish with fresh raspberries.




  1. Never had a smoothie with pears, and with all these different fruits it had to be yumm.
