This pear, avocado, and pineapple smoothie combo is ridiculously good. Despite being dairy-free, it’s creamy and tastes incredible.
In this article – we share an avocado, pear, and pineapple smoothie recipe that’s healthy, nutritious, and easy to prepare.
OK, the ingredient combo probably shouldn’t work on paper… After all, pear can be quite a delicate flavour, that’s easily overpowered by other ingredients. But for some reason, combining it with avocado and pineapple only magnifies its flavour.
Pear Avocado Pineapple Smoothie Benefits
This smoothie contains just 250 calories, yet provides a whopping 150% of your daily vitamin C requirement. This can help strengthen your immune system, so it’s fighting fit when faced with winter flu and colds.

The high fibre content makes it an ideal breakfast smoothie to enjoy before having a big meal. This means it’s perfect at Thanksgiving or Christmas (or any given Sunday if you live in the UK!). Having a light breakfast that’s full of fibre can help your body digest the large meal more easily. But this smoothie isn’t just for the mornings…
Plus, it’s super-creamy and luxurious, yet doesn’t contain any dairy. If you’re someone who enjoys creamy smoothies, but doesn’t drink milk or like yogurt, then you’ll love this recipe.
It’s also a great base for smoothie bowls. Simply skip the water to ensure it blends to a super-thick consistency, and then top with your favourite nuts, seeds, or berries. Seriously, the creamy sweetness will fool your body into thinking it’s enjoying a decadent dessert instead of a healthy treat.

Pears and pineapples are both in season during December, so it’s the perfect time to enjoy this smoothie with fresh ingredients. However you could also use tinned pineapple at other times of the year. Fresh is always best, but some fruit is better than none in our book.
