This is a fast and delicious avocado and pear smoothie that packs in all of the healthy nutrients of avocado. I recommend you use a juicy, ripe pear, with thin skin for this smoothie. You want to avoid the really hard ones, as they will be quite hard to blend.
It is important to note that pears do not freeze well, and so it is important to use the pears before they start browning.
