Delicious. I modified the recipe a little bit by necessity - used 2/3 cup yogurt (European set-in-tub style) because it was all I had and 4 ice cubes. I was worried it would be too thick for my liking, so I added a couple of tablespoons of lowfat milk. I was not expecting these flavors to play nicely together, but the spice brings out something wonderful in the pear and the banana rounds it out. Yum!
