What do you do with an abundance of pears from your tree?
Make a smoothie! Perfect for breakfast, snacks or even a healthy dessert and it’s so easy the kids can help make it. This delicious Pear Ginger Smoothie is packed with healthy protein, fiber and greens!
My pear tree is filled with an abundance of slightly ripe pears. The deer and squirrels cleaned out the entire pear harvest last year. This year, in an effort to share in this bounty, I picked two baskets of green pears. Since some were getting very ripe, I cut them in cubes and froze the pear cubes. Here is one pear recipe that I made with those cubes for the visiting grandkids to start their day off.
Since I have so many pears, there will be a few pear recipes coming up including this easy Poached Pears in Red Wine Recipe . After all, I have to make the most of being able to have my pears and eat it too. I am going to enjoy my fruit and veggies together!
Happy Hump Day. Cheers to outfoxing those pear eating deer and squirrels. Do you have suggestions for what to do with all these pears?
