Mealthy Tip

If you want to slightly cut some of the calories, the pears can also be served with plain or vanilla Greek-style yogurt for a healthier treat. You could also try sweetening the poaching liquid with maple syrup for a more caramelized flavor if you prefer.

Poaching pears is so easy! This was my first time trying them with ice cream and they were really good. I'm trying to eat lighter so next time I will probably use frozen yogurt instead.

I frequently make these poached pears! They are so delicious and perfect for canning. Also really nice as a healthy-ish sweet treat with ice cream.
