Pear Banana and Dates Smoothie

The title rings with PB&J, really i wanted to make a smoothie that rhymes with that. but what to use for J, i don't want use jelly? Ok, coming to today's smoothie, it was something i made throwing in all the last minute to live fruits. Yes, there was a pear with a waning call of attention and banana hidden among-st my son's test papers. If i threw them in the dust bin, there will be this gruesome guilt feeling of food wastage. 
So i turned them into my breakfast today. The dates in the smoothie gives a nice earthy sweet taste, that is not too overpowering like that of sugar. The taste of pear is totally masked by banana and dates. The pistachio garnish, makes it look like kheer and my kiddo happily finished it after his breakfast. Total paisa vasool smoothie!!!
Ingredients
1 small pear
1 small banana
5 nos dates, pitted
1 & 1/4 cup of milk
few pistachios for garnish
Method

  • Wash pear, core and chop it into chunks. Peel and chop the banana into chunks. Take both pear and banana along with dates in a blender jar.
  • Add a cup of milk and blend until smooth. Add the remaining milk and blend again. Pour it in glasses, top with pistachios and serve immediately.

  1. I sometimes make banana date milkshake and addition of pear must add a flavor layer.
