I have yet to discover a fruit I don’t like. I love fruits… but pears least of all.
With several pears starting to bruise and go soft, something needed to be done.
To use up the pears in a way I would enjoy, I made a smoothie by combining it with two of my favourite fruits: banana and pineapple.
This morning was a guilt-free lazy morning. I needed it. I’ve been picking up the intensity of my bicycling lately and decided I deserved a day’s rest. I didn’t want to make anything extravagant. My only criteria: quick and delicious.
Hope you get to have a lazy day too :)
