The Season of Apples and Pears


It is upon us indeed. In full flow. The first of them came a month or so ago and then they kept coming.. in different sizes and shapes. Some sweet, some tart, some firm, some grainy. But all a full representation of Fall and then Winter.

As the leaves change color and finally shake themselves loose off the branches with the cold wind, the fruits turn golden and red and overflow from wooden baskets that are a throwback to turn of the century buckets.

As part of the CSA fruit share, I have had rather an abundance of apples and pears this year. Usually, I am flustered with the bounty and my incapacity to consume as much as I get. This year have been pleasurably different!

What with the Vitamix that my birthday gift {!!! :)}, hosting some dinners and getting onboard with making chutneys and jams, they have been rapidly put to good use. My favorite use of them all is the one that uses my beloved vitamix! For several week days, I have been making these awesome no-fuss smoothies that takes a couple of minutes to make and is perfect as breakfast or after run protein boost!


As I sit by the window on my fall colored cushions, sipping on this smoothie and watching the falling leaves dance and twirl wind/gust/breeze, I cannot but help the smile that creeps up on me, filling me with joy inside out!

Apple and Pear Oat Smoothie

1 large apple, cored and diced

1-2 pears, cored and diced

1/3 cup rolled oats, raw

1/4 cup almond milk

1/4 cup water

Process all the ingredients together until you get a smooth liquid. Pour into glasses and enjoy.

This smoothie does not need any more sweetening than the ripe fruits provide but you can always add dates for added flavor.
