Good base flavors. You can at least partially prevent the rock-hard freezing problem by adding alcohol (1 or 2 oz) to the mix before putting it in the machine. Vodka won't add any taste, or you could add pear liquor, or a complementary flavor of some other kind. Most all of my ice cream recipes have a little alcohol in them (since I rarely use enough fat or sugar to keep the creaminess level high), in the form of rum or vodka. It works wonders.
Fabulous flavor! I made mine with pears in light syrup, Splenda, and low sugar, fat-free yogurt. I was very pleased with the results as were my guests. Will definitely be making this again.
I used organic pears minus any juice, Stacy's organic vanilla yogurt and 1/4 cup organic honey instead of sugar. What I did was blend it in my blender and froze it in a flat freezer container and when it firmed up, I scooped it back into the blender and re-ran it through. I froze these in dixie cups and when it was firm, I stuck popsicle sticks into them. The kids and I loved these and even my popsicle snob husband liked them. I can see how it reminds people of the holidays. It's a warm and comforting combination, even frozen!
Thank you VERY much for sending in this recipe! It was wonderful - a huge hit even with non-pear fans. I added a smidge extra cinnamon and allspice. It was so refreshing and so flavorful and unlike any ice cream or frozen yogurt I've ever had before - and it was super easy to make. I will definitely be making this one again!
This was very tasty! However, it turned out kinda slushy upon finishing up in the maker and then of course, froze rock hard in the freezer. Might have been not in the maker long enough. But good nonetheless! :-)
I have made this MANY times and my family just loves it. I prefer to use pears in natural juice and decrease the sugar. This recipe was so good it made my mother-in-law go out and buy an ice cream maker!!
Amazing! My kids went crazy over this. I used pears in their own juice and plain yogurt with 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. Even with those substitutions, I lowered the sugar to 1/4 cup. It was still very sweet. We don't have an ice cream maker, so we made the frozen yogurt in a bag. I filled a plastic gallon bag half full of ice and added 1/2 cup rock salt. I divided the yogurt mixture into three quart bags (I sometimes double bag to guard against leaks) and added them to the gallon bag. Then, the kids and I wrapped the bag up in a towel and tossed it around for about ten minutes. It was a fun activity for family night!
Light and refreshing dessert. Easy and quick to prepare, but as others have said, it is best the first day because it freezes hard and loses its creamy texture. I am excited to try this with other fruits - peaches would be great!
