Pear & Ginger Smoothie

Ginger is great when you have a bit of a queasy situation going on in that stomach of yours. When I was feeling a little less than luscious this week I ended up making this smoothie, and now feel it shall be remaining firmly within my smoothie repertoire. Pear and ginger happens to be one of my favourite combinations, and so what better way to enjoy a couple of my 5-a-day, and a gingery kick, than in the form of a thick, creamy, and refreshing drink? The pear gives you the sweetness you need to balance out the ginger, and keeps it tasting light- meaning I could probably drink a dangerous amount of this in one sitting.

So here is your super easy and quick, sweet craving kicking, and queasiness quenching, recipe. As usual, all ingredients are easy to find (you probably already have the majority of them), and you can always adapt the recipe to make it vegan friendly…


  • 1 pear, chopped
  • 1 banana, chopped up and frozen
  • 150ml milk of choice
  • Large pinch of ground ginger (I used about 1/2 tsp)
  • 50g thick Greek yoghurt

TIP! If you want a dessert version, then why not add in a couple of teaspoons of cocoa?


  • Throw everything into the blender, and watch with glee as it all gets whizzed up into a creamy smoothie.
  • Pour into a glass, add a snazzy straw, and enjoy.
