Recipe bygte615e

Ingredients: 

2 1/2 medium to large pears, such as red Anjou, peeled, seeded, and chopped (2 2/3 cups)
1 3/4 cups skim milk
1 cup low-fat buttermilk
2/3 cup rolled or quick-cooking oats
1/3 cup ice cubes
2 tablespoons plus 1 1/2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons almond butter
1 1/4 teaspoons finely grated fresh ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus more for garnish
Coarse salt


Freeze pears in a single layer on a baking sheet overnight.

Combine pears, milk, buttermilk, oats, ice, maple syrup, almond butter, ginger, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt in a blender. Blend on low speed, then gradually increase speed to high. Blend until smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Pour into chilled glasses, and garnish with ground cinnamon. Serve immediately.

Cook's Note

Freezing the pears overnight reduces the amount of ice needed for blending the next day and results in a thick and creamy texture.
