I loved this fruity milk shake. I love that it's low-calorie, yet plenty thick and sweet. I made one change and used 1 teaspoon honey + 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract in place of the sugars, otherwise as written. Delicious for my breakfast this morning! Thanks, Amanda! Made for PAC Fall 2008.
I doubled the recipe so I could use a whole pear (I know, I could just have eaten the other half)! Don't know how this changed the recipe's intent, but I also rounded the measure of sugar & then added 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla flavoring! Still, however it is supposed to taste, my drink was VERY ENJOYABLE! Really liked the inclusion of lemon juice & the cinnamon, too! Thanks for a very different, enjoyable drink!

I enjoyed this recipe. I left out the lemon juice since I did not have fresh. Next time I will also whirl some ice in there for a thicker, slushy texture. I used the whole pear. Why not? What would I do with 1/2 pear? :-) I might try nutmeg or cardamom instead of cinnamon next time! Thanks for the inspirational recipe.
Wow - the fates combined to get me to try this! I was reading it, just as my son was asking for juice, and I was thinking about some pears I have that are getting soft. :D Anyway, he and I made it together exactly as written, except for the vanilla sugar. I just added a couple drops of vanilla flavoring instead. Yum!! What a light, sweet drink that's healthy! I think in the future I'll sub Splenda for sugar, but this will be great in the summer. Thanks!
I was very pleased with the flavor of this and the consistency as well. I waffled of adding the lemon juice but I'm glad that I did, the touch of tartness was a plus factor. It was made with Splenda, fat free evaporated and skim milk in my house and for the vanilla sugar I used 1/8 tsp of vanillin. Made for Photo Tag.
I made this and shared it with my DD and DS, we all really enjoyed this! Maybe it was just personal preference for the previous reviewer, but we didn't mind the consistency one bit, but we also only added the 1/2 pear as directed. We put slices from the other half on the edge and wouldn't have minded the whole thing in it for more of a thin smoothie taste. No matter what,we will make this again for sure!!! The only change I had was to use 3.5oz Horizon vanilla milk and omit the vanilla sugar (because I didn't have any). Everything else was as directed. Thanks for posting a GREAT drink for the family,Amanda!! **Beverage tag 2007**
This was ok. I used a whole pear and it was much too much as it didn't become runny enough. I ended up having to chew it instead of drinking it!!! On the whole I reckon it tasted quite nice though.
