I like to use frozen fruit in my smoothies but fresh will work just fine! Pears are best eaten fresh, but if you need to preserve them to prevent food waste, you can slice them up and freeze them to use in smoothies. Another good option is to make a pear puree to freeze. This helps to maintain better texture and color and the puree can be used in smoothies, sauces, dressings, baked goods, and more.
