I realize its not pear season but recently I had a craving for pears - go figure. After letting them ripen in the window for several days, I turned them into this tasty parfait recipe. I tossed diced pears with a creamy caramel pudding and layered it with banana soft serve and a chewy monukka nut crumble. Don't worry about peeling the pears as the skin is so soft and its a good source of fiber.
Caramel Pear ParfaitCaramel Pudding 1/3 cup pitted, lightly packed dates 1/2 cup warm water 3 tablespoons pecan butter 3 tablespoons maple syrup 1 tablespoon lucuma powder 1/4 teaspoon vanilla bean powder 3-4 cups diced pears Soak the dates in the water for 1 hour, until very soft. Blend the soaked dates with 4 tablespoons of the soak water, pecan butter, maple syrup, lucuma, and vanilla bean until smooth. Toss the cream with the diced pears. Monukka Nut Crumble 1/4 cup almonds 1/4 cup pecans 3 tablespoons shredded coconut 1/4 cup monukka raisins 1/2 teaspoon water Process all ingredients together in a food processor until crumbly. Banana Soft Serve 3 small ripe bananas, peeled, chunked and frozen 1 tablespoon lucuma powder Blend the bananas and lucuma in a high speed blender until smooth. Assembly Caramel pear mixture Banana soft serve Monukka nut crumble Immediately after blending the banana soft serve, layer the mixtures in 3 glasses or bowls. Eat immediately.
