Hello Friends!  Who is ready for the weekend?  Do you have any fun plans?  Saturday we’re having a few of my husbands coaching friends over for a little gathering, so I have been in the kitchen preparing a few of his favorite dishes all week.  We all know a good party is ALL about the food!  Other than that the weekend should be pretty low key, watching lots of football, eating, and having a few adult beverages after a long week.  I can’t wait!  But first let’s get to todays FridayFavorites, thanks to Heather for the link up.

It doesn’t matter if it’s 30 or 90 degrees outside, I will still sip on and enjoy a smoothie every morning all year long.  It’s my favorite breakfast and way to start my day.  Typically I make a smoothie after my morning workout so I add Shakeology or other protein powder.  And I love adding seasonal fruit.  During the summer I was all about peaches, strawberries, and cherries, but now that it’s officially Fall I have been enjoying adding apples, pumpkin, blueberries, or pears to my smoothies.  So today I wanted to share with you some of my favorite Fall Smoothies around the web and a recipe for a delicious Green Pear Smoothie.

Green Pear Smoothie
21 Day Fix EXTREME - Extreme Fitness. Simple Eating. Serious Results.There are many different ways to use pears in a smoothie, I learned a ton of new recipes when my husband and I did a Green Smoothie Challenge through Simple Green Smoothies last year.  During the month long challenge, each week Simple Green Smoothies sends you an email with different recipes and a shopping list for the week.  And the best part of the challenge is it’s totally FREE!  I would highly recommend taking the challenge to anyone looking to find new recipes or anyone that wants to consistently start drinking a green smoothie.  But today is all about some of my personal favorites.  I love this combination of pear, cinnamon, and almond butter in the recipe,  To me it tastes like Fall in a glass.

    You’ve reminded me I have not had enough pears this fall. They are so good and this smoothie looks amazing!

      I usually forget about pears too. The simple smoothies recipes opened my eyes to so many different recipes.

    What a refreshing looking smoothie! I love pears- I haven’t put any in my smoothies in a long time, clearly that needs to change!

    I haven’t been drinking smoothies as much as I used to, but I tend to agree that they are for all seasons! Happy Friday, gal! 🙂

      I usually go through phases of the foods I like to eat, but smoothies have seemed to stay for a few years now. I just can’t get enough!

    I love the Vitamix for smoothies; it can grind up pretty much anything. This looks like a really AMAZING creamy smoothie. 🙂

      I agree, pumpkin is probably my favorite and I somehow have yet to use any yet this year. I’ll make sure that changes this weekend 😉

      It’s good for your body to switch up the fruits and veggies you eat, so I definitely suggest trying a few new smoothie recipes. Let me know if you give this one a try!
