There are times when I get excited seeing beautiful fruits and purchase a little too many of something. When I run into a situation where I see my chosen fruit is going bad on me, I have to react to save it. Of course there are many fruits you can just cut up and freeze. Others don’t do as well in the freezer.
Pears are one of those for me. I bought a big bag of beautiful Bosc pears. They started to turn on me before I could eat them all. There are many things you can do with your ripe pears. They are great to add to smoothies for creaminess. It yields a very similar texture that bananas have to smoothies. I have also come to love pears puréed. You can just throw them in your food processor, add a little lemon juice and keep refrigerated. The purée is great to add to oatmeal, porridge or granola.
I love pears heated as well. You can slice, top with cinnamon and microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute. This makes a wonderful dessert on its own or top with vanilla nice cream, coconut yogurt or coconut whipped topping.
I decided to try something new and come up with a pear pudding recipe. Just add your pears ( skins off) a little banana, vanilla, cinnamon to food processor and voila pudding! Makes a wonderful healthy dessert. Top with berries or eat plain. Trust me you’ll love it.
- 2 Pears
- ¼ Banana
- Splash of Almond milk
- ½ tsp Vanilla
- Cinnamon to taste
- Amounts depend on how many you are serving.
- This made enough for small serving for 1-2 people
- Peel your pears and add to food processor along with the remaining ingredients. Blend till smooth and desired thickness.
- If not eating right away add a little bit of lemon juice to help with browning..
