    Hands down, my absolute favorite smoothie for breakfast, lunch, or a filling snack

    I'd had avocado bubble tea before and it is one of my favourite ones. I made the pear juice myself and my smoothie was really too thick, I was more eating it than drinking it. But I just realised that it calls for 1/2 avocado per person and I used the whole thing... -_-" So for sure I'll be making this again, using the right amounts. The flavour is great though! Pretty sure it would be great with any type of juice too. Apple, or pineapple (mmmm), etc

    This smoothie has a mild, smooth flavor. I will be making it again. I used half the vanilla and avocado recommend and I used the juice of two fresh juiced red pears. Yummy

    I found the vanilla extract in the recipe to be too overwhelming and I was disappointed that I couldn't taste the pear nectar as a result. I think I'll stick to fruit smoothies and leave the avocado for my salad!

    Good smooth flavor and creaminess. I used a third of an avocado, if I would have used the whole avocado it would have been too much.

    Anyone know the nutrition for this one?

    The next time I make this I will use less vanilla--I found the flavor to be a bit overpowering.

    This is good...odd, but good. I like the creaminess of it; it tastes very rich and decadent, but then, that's not always what I want first thing in the morning. I think I'd rather stick with one of the other smoothies for breakfast.
