A Delicious Smoothie

As I said in an earlier post, I started Weight Watchers.  Well I was on the hunt a couple good smoothie recipes for when I wake up.  Well, I am pretty picky about what fruits I like, and most of the recipes include blueberries or bananas, which are the two fruits I don't care for.  So I decided that I would just make my own, I have looked at a bunch of recipes, and I think I got the hang of it.  This is my Vanilla Pear Smoothie Recipe.

1 1/2 Pears (eat what you don't use!)
1 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder ( I used the Body Fortress Brand, its from Wal-Mart)
2 tbsp. Splenda
1/2-1 cup Skim Milk (depending how you like the thickness of it, this time I used 1/2 cup)
3/4-1 1/2 cups ice

Just Blend it all together and enjoy it!  I REALLY like pears, and if you do, this is the one for you.  This creates a HUGE smoothie, and it only has 333 calories.  It had 2 grams of fat, 40 grams of carbs, 6 grams of fiber, and 31 grams of protein.  That equals out to be only 7 Weight Watcher's PointsPlus Value!  This is definitely going to be something that I will be making for breakfast.  I also bought apples to try in the same recipe.  If you use apples instead of pears, I only use 1 large apple in the recipe.  It has 336 calories, 2 grams of fat, 49 grams of carbs, 5 grams of fiber, and 35 grams of protein, which makes this recipe have 9 PointsPlus Value.

I hope whoever reads this, enjoys the recipes I put out there!
