Yogurt Stuffed Pears



Pears Stuffed with yogurt, almond butter and granola

I've been on a quest to add a variety of fruits and vegetables to my diet this year.
It's easy to get stuck in a rut buying the same things over and over, so when these Anjou
pears caught my eye, I decided to add them to our cart.  Last month I tried dragon fruit
for the first time in a smoothie and loved it!



Over the weekend, when I craved a healthy, filling snack, I came up with the idea of
stuffed pears, so I grabbed a melon baller to remove the seeds and then thought about
how to fill them.

Since our fridge is always full of Stonyfield yogurt, I reached for a container of
Stonyfield 100% Grass Fed yogurt to spoon into the pears.  For added protein I
drizzled Woodstock Organic Almond Butter over the yogurt and then topped each pear
with Woodstock Hiker's Harvest Mix and a little honey.  The harvest mix added sweetness
and crunch to each bite! The pears were healthy, filling and tasted great!

Yogurt stuffed pears are healthy and delicious as a snack, but they would also be
great for breakfast or add a few mini chocolate chips and call it dessert!

Slice pears lengthwise.  Using a melon baller or spoon, scoop out the seeds
creating a small hole in each pear.

Spoon yogurt into pears. Drizzle almond butter all over each pear.
Sprinkle with harvest mix and drizzle with honey.
