Pear Frozen Yogurt is a great summer treat and is super easy to make! This post is sponsored by R.W. Knudsen as part of their blog ambassador program.
It’s been in the 90’s all week in Florida and we’ve been breaking all sorts of record highs for April and it doesn’t look like May is going to be any cooler. Summer is here and I’m filling my freezer with some treats for my family to chill out with. I received a few bottles of RW Knudsen’s Organic Pear juice in my quarterly box of goodies as part of their ambassador program and I knew I wanted to make a frozen treat.
The recipe was pretty simple but I’m sure you could tweak it to your desired consistency. I honestly wish it had been a little creamier, but I have no clue what to change to make it creamier. The mixture before it was frozen was actually a really nice consistency that would have made for a nice summer fruit soup, or if it were a little thicker it would have made an amazing smoothie. I’m sure my kids would have preferred a frozen popsicle, the possibilities here are endless.
- 2 bartlett pears
- 1 cup of RW Knudsen Organic Pear Juice
- 1.5-2 cups of Stonyfield Organic Whole Milk French Vanilla Yogurt
- Juice from one lemon
Start by chopping your pears into small chunks. Add the pear cubes, lemon juice and pear juice to a small pot on the stove and boil until the pears are tender. Once the pears are tender and mashable set the mixture aside to cool. When the mixture is cooled add your yogurt and blend again. You can now pour your mixture into your freezer container. I filled it directly into a single serving glass mason jar that was suitable for serving. You could also fill it into silicone molds to create fun shaped treats.
I have a very simple immersion hand blender that I’ve been using and I love how quick and easy it is to use and clean.
Freeze your treats for 2-3 hours until firm. My mixture was slightly harder than I would have liked and had to be partially thawed before we could eat it. It still had a satisfying, simple taste that was perfect for your sweet tooth.
I served these with little frozen yogurt stars on top and my daughter loved to nibble on those by themselves. I simply placed yogurt into a star candy mold and froze them 2-3 hours. Just be careful when you pop the treats from the mold, the plastic can crack. Silicone molds would work better for the freezer.
What else would you make with pear juice? I’m pretty sure the rest of the bottle will end up in my breakfast smoothies.
