Poached Pears (Serves 4)
200ml apple juice
1 cinnamon stick
4 just-ripe pears, halved lengthways and cores removed
60g flaked almonds, toasted
300g low fat natural yoghurt
Put the apple juice and cinnamon stick into a saucepan, along with 200ml water and 200ml apple juice. Bring to the boil.
Reduce to a simmer, and add the pears. Cover with a lid and cook for 10-15mins, or until the pears are tender. Remove the pears using a slotted spoon and set aside.
Bring the remaining juice to the boil, and reduce volume by half.
To serve, place half a pear in the centre of a plate, top with yoghurt and flaked almonds, and spoon a little of the reduced juice around the edge.
