Banana Pear Milkshake Recipe. A very refreshing and filling milkshake made with banana and pears.
Banana and Pear are fruits that have natural and simple sugar in them. Since banana and pear provide a good source of energy-producing nutrients, I often make Banana Pear Milkshake Recipe for our breakfast. My neighbor make this Banana Pear Milkshake Recipe very often, and she was the one who taught me this recipe. Every morning, once she returns from Gym, she will drink this energy-boost Banana Pear Milkshake.
We buy banana and pear fruits from Costco. So, when I buy them from Costco, I would have at least fifteen pears and a dozen of banana. Pears get spoiled soon. In order to use them wisely, I make Banana Pear Milkshake Recipe for the breakfast. Apart from vitamins and minerals, do you know that banana and pear are rich in dietary fiber? Some of us would peel the skin of pears, but I use them in my smoothie just because it helps in digestion problems and constipation. If you have a sweet tongue, you will surely like this Banana Pear Milkshake Recipe.

Guava Juice Recipe – An easy and yummy juice that is made with guava fruit.
Guava is very good for health. Guava helps in the treatment of diarrhea, dysentery, constipation, and high blood pressure.
During my childhood days, I would eat guava very often. Eating guava is not a big thing at all. When my dad insists me to eat at least one guava a day, I would hesitate a little. After I moved to USA, I don’t get to eat guava much. Past ten years, I’ve had it only four or five times. I’ve been missing guava a lot. Luckily, I saw guavas last week and thought I’ll make juice out of it. It tasted good and we liked it. When you make Guava Juice, make sure you strain it, if not when you drink you’ll get seeds in between.
