Pear Chai Smoothie with Caramel

Jessica Merchant | Smoothies, Dessert, Pears | American

If you're looking for a new way to incorporate pears into your dessert, this Pear Chai Smoothie is where it's at! This version of a pear milkshake will make a delicious winter treat.

Royal Riviera Pears are a staple of the holiday season, and we've done plenty of pear recipes, but this is something a little different! To create this Pear Chai Smoothie, caramelize the pears with butter, brown sugar and some chai spice until they are golden and soft. Once those cool, blend them with ice cream to make a pear pie in a glass. It's another take on a pear milkshake that is creamy, sweet, and delightful to drink. Plus, it's so simple to make, it only takes a few steps until you're in pear heaven. A caramel drizzle on the rim takes it over the top and you will forever question how you eat your next pear. It's so delicious!
