Love and Smoothies: Poetry Monday

Pear Ginger Smoothie | recipe developed by | #recipe #fruit




Poetry Monday's once a week.
I bet you know which day.
I don't participate every time,
But today I've come out to play.

My friends assign each week a theme,
Frozen Yogurt's, what they chose.
Now it's up to all of us,
to put our thoughts into prose.

Love and Smoothies
Valentine's Day rhyming,
I was all set.
But our theme's frozen yogurt?
So here's what you get . . .
Roses are red,
violets are blue.
I like frozen yogurt,
well, don't you? 

Roses are yellow,
and violets are purple.
Frozen yogurt in the blender,
I watch it circle.
Violets are lavender,
and roses can be pink.
Frozen yogurt can make,
such a yummy drink.
Violets are violet,
and roses are white.
A frozen yogurt smoothie,
for Valentine's night?

Pear Ginger Smoothie


Violets are mauve,
roses can be peach.
Made frozen yogurt smoothies,
one for us each.
Violets are amethyst,
roses can even be black.
If you don't drink that smoothie,
I may take it back.

Pear Ginger Smoothie Smoothie         

Printable Recipe

2 cups vanilla yogurt
2 medium sized ripe pears
1/2 cup spinach
1 tsp ginger paste
3 TBSP honey

*At least 2 hours before blending, cover a small baking pan (toaster oven size) with a lip so the yogurt doesn't leak out, with parchment paper. Spread the yogurt onto the pan and lay flat in the freezer.
*Peel, core, and chop the pears.
*Clean the spinach and pat dry.
*Once the yogurt is frozen, remove from the parchment paper, chop,and place in a food processor with the chopped pear, spinach, ginger, and honey. Blend, then scrape the sides down, blend, scrape the sides down, and continue until smooth.



  1. I enjoyed this post
    I read it during breakfast
    While drinking coffee

  2. Looks wonderful! And nutritious too!

  3. Your poem brought a smile. Your recipe had me until spinach. That is ok, they won’t let me use a knife anyway. Donna

    1. So happy I made you smile (and you can always just skip the spinach).

  4. I was so sure this was going to be for St. Pats that I pinned it on my St. Pats board. I'm happy you finally decided to celebrate holidays after your post of the other day!

    1. Perfect for St. Patrick's Day. I would have saved the recipe for another few weeks, but given the Frozen Yogurt theme chosen for today's post, it got moved up.

  5. You wouldn't have to take mine back! Fun poem, i really like how you did that.

  6. That looks delicious! You always make it work!

  7. I'm not big on smoothies. Most are just too thick for me to enjoy. I guess it's a weird texture thing for me.

    1. Now I'm wondering if you feel the same way about milkshakes.
