I love a Pear and Almond Tart for dessert, but it’s not an everyday indulgence. So, to enjoy one of my favorite desserts, I made a smoothie version that I can enjoy as breakfast, as a light and simple dessert on a weekday evening, or as an afternoon pick-me-up! It comes together in less than 5 minutes, and is incredible for digestion, as well as for keeping energy levels up and stable.
