Deliciously Non-ChocolateFebruary, 2012
Chocolate overload? How about a change of pace with a refreshing dessert that actually includes (healthy) fruit and yogurt. We love this one from the blog, Tartelette:
Asian Pear Frozen Yogurt Tartelletblog.com
2 large Asian Pears
1/4 teaspoon freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice
1 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger
1 1/2 cups Greek yogurt
1/2 cup sugar
Generous pinch of fine sea salt
1 tablespoon crushed pink peppercorns or pomegranate seeds
Peel and chop the pears into small 1/2-inch chunks. Toss them with the lemon or lime juice to prevent oxidizing. In a blender, combine the pears and ginger and puree until smooth. Add water if difficult to puree.
In a large bowl, combine the pear puree with the yogurt, sugar and salt. Refrigerate for an hour.
Churn the mixture in ice cream maker.
Freeze until firm. Serve topped with peppercorns or pomegranate seeds.
