Divine! Oh, how lovely fresh pears are... though I think this would be almost as good with frozen or canned ones. I halved the recipe, used unsweetened soymilk with less water for the malted soymilk, and added about 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract. I heated mine, and it was perfect- just the right thick warming treat to start the day! Thank you!
