Partridge in a Pear Tree Smoothie

I was reminded of the song, On the Twelth Day of Christmas, when I thought of the idea for this pear smoothie. You know, the patridge in a pear tree?

This drink will give you lots of energy. I like it as an afternoon pick-me-up. This makes one serving.

In a blender, add, in this order:

  • 6 ice cubes
  • 1/2 cup canned pears in juice, mashed (you can also use very ripe, fresh pears. I left the peel on mine)
  • A splash of the juice from the can (use water or apple juice if you are using fresh pears)
  • 1/2 cup of plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cap of almond extract
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • Pinch of ground cloves
  • If you have it and you like the taste, a pinch of cardamon
  • A squeeze of honey

Blend and enjoy! By the way, this beautiful Partridge in a Pear Tree ornament is made by Old World Christmas.
