Pear Nutmeg Smoothie

Smoothies aren’t exactly rainy-day food, I appreciate that.  Days like today – cold blustery rain bordering on flurries – bring to mind hot chocolate, tea and frothy lattes more than cold, blended fruit drinks.  This is, however, my favourite smoothie of all time, and I will not let the weather ruin it for me the way it has my hair.

Usually I’m pretty casual with smoothies – bananas, frozen fruit, yogurt, milk, blender, boom.  I don’t measure and inevitably end up with 3.5 glasses to sip at while working or chug down post-run.  This pear nutmeg version is higher maintenance – coring the pear, grating the chocolate – but well worth it.  It’s subtle & decadent enough to make you forget the weather entirely.

Pear Nutmeg Smoothie


1-2 pears, cored
3/4 cup yogurt (plain or vanilla)
1 cup vanilla soy milk
1/4 oz white chocolate, grated
drizzle of maple syrup
3 generous pinches of nutmeg
2 ice cubes


1.  Place all ingredients in a blender & blend until smooth.
