Pear and Cinnamon Smoothie is the ultimate gluten-free, vegan, autumn smoothie. Using seasonal fruit means the smoothie is full of flavour and nutrients. A perfect way to start your weekend or your working day. Pears lend themselves perfectly to smoothies, gluten-free oats add texture and substance… The cinnamon with pear is warming and satisfying and gives you a big morning hug.
Pear and Cinnamon Smoothie is gluten-free and vegan as well as… celery free, coconut free, garlic free, lupin free, mustard free, nightshade free, onion free, peanut free, sesame free, soya free, tree nut free.
Depending on when you make this you can use other seasonal fruit and sub the cinnamon for other spices. You can also use frozen fruit (thawed).
If you can leave this in the fridge overnight before making – even better…
You can use any type of blender to get the smooth texture you prefer.
Preparation time 10 minutes (excluding soaking time)
Cooking time 0 minutes
120 grams gluten-free oats
900 millilitres non-dairy milk (almond milk is great)
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Juice and zest of 1 lemon
1. Place the oats and non-dairy milk into a container and leave in the fridge for a minimum of 30 minutes – preferably overnight
2. Core (if you prefer you can peel the pears – I like the colour and flavour from the skins), remove the stalk and chop the pears in to chunks. Zest and juice the lemon
3. Add the pears, lemon juice and zest and cinnamon to the oats and non-dairy milk
4. Using an immersion blender whizz the oats, non-dairy milk and all the other ingredients until smooth and creamy
