This was lovely and refreshing - perfect for the hot weather! Made for ZWT6 Ya Ya's
Yum! We used the last lot of our home grown pears and I had it chilling in the freezer for about 2 days. We all really found it refreshing and Little Miss (DD) called it ice cream. It was a bonus for us, Little Miss is lactose intolerant and it was like getting a wonderful treat. Served it with a fresh fruit salad. Thanks for another great recipe gailanng
Yummy! The perfect treat for a hot day. The pear and almond are such a wonderful combo waltzing lightly over you tongue. Served in custard cup, but next time will dress up by serving in a martini glass garnished with a strawberry and mint leaf. DH said this reminds him of the Italian ices he used to get as a child. All I know is I will make again. Supper yummy, thanks so much for the post.
