You’ll never believe how easy this ice cream recipe is! This is a great substitute for fat, sugar, and calorie-laden store-bought ice cream.

Ingredients

  • 1 carton of apple juice
  • 5-6 pears cored and peeled
  • 1 Teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 large tub of plain yogurt

Directions

Place apple juice in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Leaving the pot uncovered, reduce down to a syrup and continue stirring until it turns into a caramel consistency.

In a blender, combine pears and lemon juice till smooth.

Mix into the yogurt and add the caramel. 

Put into an ice cream maker. Freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Caramel Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Caramel Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
