1. Roughly chop the banana and put in a freezerproof container. Freeze for at least 2 hours or ideally overnight, until solid.
2. When ready to make your smoothie, put all the ingredients, including the frozen banana, in a high-speed blender. Add 150-200ml ice-cold water and blend until smooth. Serve at once.
The riper the pear and banana are, the sweeter yoru smoothie will be. To give it more sweetness, add a handful of green grapes or a pitted medjool date.
