Enjoy this warm fruit salad with a slice of toasted fruit bread.
Serves: 4 adults
Preparation time: 10 mins
Cooking time: 10 mins
4 ripe pears peeled, halved and cored
200ml unsweetened apple juice
½ tsp ground mixed spice (optional)
4 slices sliced fruit bread
4 tbsp low fat Greek-style natural yoghurt
What to do:
1. Put the pears and sultanas or raisins into a saucepan with the unsweetened apple juice and mixed spice (if using). Heat and simmer gently for 10 minutes, or until the pears are tender.
2. While the pears are cooking, peel the oranges with a sharp, serrated knife to remove all the peel and pith, then cut into segments. When the pears are ready, remove from the heat and add the orange segments.
3. Toast the slices of fruit bread. Share the pear mixture between 4 bowls and top each portion with 1 tbsp. 0% fat Greek yoghurt. Serve with the toasted fruit bread.
Tip 1: Choose pears that aren’t too ripe or too hard.
Tip 2: Use regular low fat yoghurt instead of the 0% fat Greek variety.
Tip 3: Another time, make the recipe with 8 plums instead of pears.
