Sometimes during the cold weather transitions, we need something to remind us of warmer days. I made this Strawberry, Pear & Cucumber Smoothie after a run today and it was absolutely refreshingly delicious. I had too many ripe pears sitting on my counter, begging to be used. They possess such a juicy sweetness that their addition to a smoothie like the only logical next step. And what a perfect smoothie they made! Throw in frozen strawberries, a cucumber and some ice and oh, it’s like I’m back in summer days, and not this dreary, rainy weather.
