In my neck of the woods pears are in season. I anticipate eating a lot of them in the near future. I usually end up freezing them as well. Today, I used fresh.
I washed and peeled two pears.
I cut them up and tossed them in a pan with two tbsp of water some cinnamon, ginger, ground cloves, nutmeg and some cinnamon basil.
I covered and cooked them on low while I was cooking dinner. When I finished cooking dinner I turned off the heat and let them cool while we ate.
After dinner I put about 3 tbsp greek yogurt in the Vitamix. I poured the pears and the delicious liquid from the pan in with the yogurt. I added a few (5) ice cubes then blended it up. I had to add a few more ice cubes as I blended to achieve the desired thickness. Since that will vary from person to person, add as many or as few as you like. I like it to be thick enough to have the straw stand up.
