Pears are such an underrated fruit. If you are like me and can no longer have apples, pears are a great alternative.
With so many different varieties you will find one that you will love. D’Anjou has to be one of my all-time favourites, with a beautiful lush rose colour it’s full of flavour and juice.
If apples give you digestive issues, then pears will become your new BFF.
Normally I have granola for breakfast. Which I love, but somedays I just want something different.
While browsing the pantry one day I came across an open packet of almond meal. I go through phases where I go through this stuff like there is no tomorrow, and then there will be stages where it never sees the light of day. I was in that later stage.
It was then I remembered that I had a porridge recipe that I collected back in 2013 that used pears and almond meal. I decided to make it again, and well let’s just say I’m glad it is back in my life.
If you are looking for a grain-free breakfast dish that’s great for warm summer mornings, then look no further.
Almond Pear Porridge for 1
- 1 Pear, peeled, cored and cut into chunks
- 1/3 cup of almond or coconut milk (carton)
- 1/2 cup almond meal
- 1/8 cup ground flaxseed
- 1 scoop True Protein Powder (vanilla or strawberry)
- 1/8 cup shredded coconut
- Blend the pear and almond (or coconut milk) in a food processor
- Add the almond meal, flaxseed and protein powder
- Blend until combined
- Add the shredded coconut, and blend again until the coconut is just mixed through
The pears will give it a natural sweetness. If you find it’s not sweet enough, add 1-2 tsp of sweetener of your choice, like honey, maple syrup or monk fruit.
