Cardamom Flavoured Pear Smoothie

I love adding cardamom seeds in most of my shakes and smoothies preparation, i love those flavour in my homemade juices too..There were a bag of pears were sitting in my fruit basket as none wanted them to have  and i prepared this smoothie with those sweet pears with thick yogurt and cardamom seeds, obviously this smoothie tastes fabulous, truly refreshing and a healthy drink to enjoy while its hot, when served chilled its definitely tastes too prefect to beat the hot summer,also as usual i didnt add sugar to this smoothie instead of adding sugar, i went for honey,if u dont have honey u can go for sugar as per ur need, since i used honey in this smoothie this drink suits prefectly for any aged peoples..


2cups Pears (chopped)
2cups Thick yogurt
1/4cup Milk
Agave syrup or honey as per need
2nos Cardamom pods

Blend the chopped pears, yogurt, milk ,honey and cardamom pods together, u can strain either this smoothie or else can serve immediately with ice cubes or chilled..

Enjoy this refreshing drink..

Me too. :) Love cardamom in all shakes / smoothies.
I bet this smoothie was really delicious.
My pear was sitting alone in the fridge for many days, had turned sweeter and so no sweetener was needed in my version..
