Bender’s Blenders: Banana Blueberry + Strawberry Sorbet = Incom”pear”able

Yes, it’s a lengthy one – but it all translates into BSI!!

Ingredients (serves two):

  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 medium banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/4 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 Island Way Orange Mango Sorbet
  • 1/2 green D’Anjou pear, sliced

Note: I found the sorbet at Costco in a big bulk pack that came with all the flavors you see in the link above. It’s a great find – the sorbet comes in the actual fruit peel as a container, how cool is that?! – and makes for a very nice dessert on its own, too!

But back to the real deal at hand – the smoothie! I blended the ingredients together and then added the remaining 1/2 pear to the top of each smoothie for garnish.

The verdict? Bobby and I were both BIG fans of this fruity delight. It combines so many delicious fruits into one big glass, and you can definitely taste each unique flavor. I’ve never tried pear in a smoothie before, and I think it must have added to the delicious factor. When combined with the sorbet to give it that extra kick of sweetness and chill, this smoothie becomes one that I will definitely be having again!!

My hubby and I LOVED this smoothie! We made it tonight for the first time and enjoyed it for dessert. I don’t have a Costco nearby, so I substituted fat-free Haagen Dazs mango sorbet (about 1 cup) for the Island Way, and it was Dee-LISH! I definitely agree that the pear and sorbet really make it pop!
