chocolate pear hazelnut smoothie {giveaway}

chocolate pear hazelnut smoothie
Can you believe how quickly June is flying by? It feels like yesterday I was getting pumped for non dairy month, planning what to wear to Matt & Mitzie's wedding and gearing up for the 30 day ab challenge. Amazingly the wedding was this weekend & fabulous! I am heading towards the 100+ sit up mark in the challenge and this is my last smoothie post for non dairy month.

Hazelnut milk was a first for me- it worked wonders in a smoothie and the chocolate was a favorite of Justin's ....although he is partial to anything chocolate.

Because of the strength of Hazelnut’s flavor, it’s recommended for use in baking and coffee applications, but can overpower savory applications.

3 ingredients- YES, only three! Makes this a quick & easy smoothie that you should totally add to your morning routine. I was in love with the first sip and and thought to myself, yep, I now have a new morning addiction.

As you know from my last post I have a special place in my heart for pears, add chocolate and we're partners for life.

Funny, I had never thought to add pears to a smoothie but it just seemed right paired up with the chocolate hazelnut milk. The banana adds body to the overall smoothie and a little sweetness.

  3. Hi Heather, I just wanted to let you know that your post photos aren't coming up on Bloglovin. I'm not sure if you've ever looked at Bloglovin (it's an RSS feed app that people can use online and on mobiles) for some reason it's taking your Pin It button as the picture. So you might lose some followers who "eat with their eyes" first.

    1. THANK YOU so much for letting me know- I just changed my Pin it Button format to a Hover Button, I think this should fix the problem for future posts!

  17. This looks sooooo good. I was so skeptical the first time I tried a green smoothie, but was surprised that the taste of spinach really does disappear just like everyone says it does. How about that? ;) I could use a change from the usual banana-berry-spinach combo, though.

  18. Hmm that's tough, I don't do too many smoothies but the standard banana peanut butter is always a favorite, and anything cake batter flavored would be awesome though I've yet to recreate that! This sounds like a nutella smoothie, yum!

  20. My favorite smoothie is what I call an "avocolada": avocado, pineapple, coconut meat, vanilla extract, hemp protein, and fresh apple juice or nut milk! Sometimes I throw in some spinach, too!
