There’s something about enjoying poached pears during winter, it tastes like Christmas!
I gently poach them in a light cinnamon syrup with hints of spice and warm undertones of honey. They are my favourite spooned over protein yogurt and oatmeal for dessert or breakfast.
Ingredients: Serves 1
- 1-2 Pears
- 1 tsp Stevia
- 1/2 cup of Yogurt ( I use probiotic or coconut yogurt)
- 1 Scoop of Protein (I use Whey Protein)
- 1 Cinnamon stick
- Cinnamon sugar or honey
Place 4 cups of water, the cinnamon stick & stevia in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to the boil then reduce heat to medium-low.
Add pears. Cook, partially covered for 20 minutes or until pears are tender. Remove from heat & allow pears to cool in syrup.
- Mix yogurt, protein powder & oats together & place pears on top.
- Sprinkle some cinnamon sugar or drizzle honey on top & enjoy!
