"I've always loved the combination of cinnamon and pears; toss in a banana, some milk and a few other things and you've got a delightful breakfast drink. If you have the foresight to freeze the banana chunks ahead of time, this is even more refreshing." — Sarah-May

I have made this recipe for 2 times now and this was delcious and tender. For the second time I added more yogurt and less milk and this consistency I liked more. Be sure to use spices in this recipe.
This was great for a smoothie that doesn't contain ice. That being said, if the banana had been frozen or a little bit of ice was added while blending it would have been much more refreshing. I'd never thought of using spices in a smoothie; they definitely give this smoothie some character! We will make this again and try it with those changes. Thank you for sharing!
definitely freeze the banana and pears the night before....and make sure to cut them into chunks before freezing them
I loved this recipe. The cinnamon was really delicious. I halved the recipe and used the frozen banana chunks. I also didnt have vanilla yogurt so I used peach yogurt. Very filling and delicious!
I made this recipe for the first time a couple months ago for a Brinner Night. I doubled this recipe, used two frozen bananas, nonfat milk, and Stacy's organic nonfat vanilla yogurt. It was REALLY good and we all liked it. I remember thinking that this would make a really great summer smoothie ice pop, too!
Very tasty and refreshing. The only difference my boyfriend and I made was that we used frozen bananas and soy milk instead of regular. Overall a definite make again.
Very well done! The best comment came from my friend, Lim, who said, "This tastes like Fall."
