Pears

Pears are hypoallergenic - less likely to cause allergic reactions - and high in colon-clearing dietary fiber. The fresh, buttery fruit also contains free radical-fighting copper and vitamin C. To prepare a pear for extraction in the NutriBullet, rinse well, cut in half and remove the core, stem and seeds. You can leave the skin on.

Selection Process

Pears are quite perishable once ripe, so grocery stores generally sell them a few days before they're ready to be eaten. Buy smooth, unblemished pears and set them on your counter to ripen. You'll know they're ready once their skin gives way to gentle pressure.
