Poached Pear with Chocolate


Poached Pear with Chocolate

Couple weeks ago I had the chance to try the new Liberté Greek Yogourt 0% and falled in love with the product.  It is creamy, thick and has such a subtle taste.  It is really good on its own but I like to use it in recipes.
When I prepare a menu for entertaining the first thing that goes on the list is dessert.  It's one of my pleasures in life.  Some of my friends and family wants desserts that are lighter. The inspiration for this dessert came when I was craving chocolate and wanted to offer my guests a healthier dessert.
For a memorable dessert that is visually appealing, try this Poached Pear with Chocolate and Liberté Vanilla Greek Yogurt next time guests are coming over. 
Poaching Pears:
  1. 60 ml sugar
  2. 1 Liter water
  3. 15 ml mulling spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves)
  4. 4 pears

Simmer first 3 ingredients in a saucepan for 5 minutes.
Add pears and simmer until barely fork tender.  Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.
Chocolate Sauce:
  1. 4 pieces Toblerone chocolate (from large bar)
  2. 60 ml  35% cream

Melt the chocolate pieces with the cream in the microwave on medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes until the chocolate is melted. Mix well.
Assembling the plates:
Drop 60 ml of Liberté Vanilla Greek Yogurt 0% on each plate.  Top with a pear.  Spoon chocolate sauce over the pear.  Serve.
Enjoy!
