    This sounds so tasty! I’m always looking for another reason to use my new blender :] Is pear juice hard to find? I don’t think I’ve ever seen it at the supermarket, but, then again, I’ve never really looked.

    A reminder that kiwis work great in smoothies, something I totally forgot about! Thank you :)

    Hi Grace,
    Thank you for your comment. This was a lovely smoothie. Pear juice is quite available here, although I don’t know about your area. It is also sometimes called pear nectar. Or, if you use canned pears, you could use the syrup they are in. The pear juice was just used to sweeten the smoothie and enhance the flavor of the pears. I hope you enjoy the smoothie.

    Hi Nadia,
    Thank you for your comment. Yes, kiwis are great, not just in smoothies. We have a lovely pineapple pie with kiwi sauce

    I just asked for a blender for my birthday and now I really hope I get one because I can’t wait to try this smoothie! It will be great to sit outside in the nice spring weather with this drink. Thanks for the recipe.

    Hi Johanna,
    Oh I hope you get your wish :-) even if it doesn’t happen, please enjoy the sunshine and lovely spring weather.

    This sounds so refreshing! I’ve never put kiwi in my smoothies, but by the sounds of this…that’s going to change! :o )

    Hi Michelle,
    Thank you for your comment. Mmmmmm, kiwis ar really nice in smoothies, you need something sweet to offset the sour, but that woks well with the banana and pears. I hope you try it and enjoy.

    Love your blog.

    Can’t believe I never though of putting kiwi in a smoothie! What a treat.

    I’m so excited to work through more of your recipes, have tried three so far and have been impressed with all.

    Hi Kelsey,
    Thank you for your comment. Yes, funny how one forgets about some things…or it doesn’t even occur to them. This made a very nice smoothie. I hope you enjoy it.
