Healthy Sundae: Pears
Every year for Christmas my aunt gives us a large box of pears. I love these so much and my mouth starts watering in anticipation of them in early December. There are many great things you can do with pears, sure, but we mainly eat them straight-up or add them to a few of our basic favorite foods.
This, however, is my favorite way to eat them. It might just be a wee streeeeeeetch to call this a sundae, but I promise if you close your eyes and let your taste buds take over, you will forget this sweet dish is a healthy, no-sugar-added snack. Ripe pears add natural melt-in-your-mouth sweetness, and the cottage cheese packs a low-fat, high-protein punch. You can also substitute with Greek yogurt.
