Pear Walnut Smoothie with cinnamon

Pears. Walnuts. Buttermilk – Right, another winter-smoothie.

It’s only the second smoothie recipe on Strudel & Cream but I have to say I fell in love with smoothies this winter. They are so easy to make and bring a little bit of fruity variety into the short winter days. I am not talking about color though ;-)

  1. Two pear and walnut recipes in a row?! I hit the jackpot today :) These sound totally wonderful and yummy–I’ve never put buttermilk in a smoothie before! My absolute favorite is like a green milkshake–almond milk, cacao powder, peanut butter, frozen banana, and LOTS of spinach. Creamy, cold, delicious!
