My approach to healthy eating is everything in moderation. Unfortunately sometime over the school holidays I forgot the moderation part and my diet became everything in
I’m in the process of paring back the damage (or more correctly, thinking that I should do something about it).
Dessert probably isn't part of most weight loss plans, but I find it I deny myself the good stuff entirely I find I fall off the wagon. This recipe for pear wedges cooked in the Actifry is the best of both worlds. The caramelised pears are so tasty you’d never know they’re a lighter option!
pear wedges with zesty yoghurt - an Actifry recipe
- 750g firm pears
- 1 tbs coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
For the zesty yoghurt:
- 250g greek yoghurt
- 3 tbs coconut sugar
- orange zest
I can’t claim to have invented this yoghurt trick - Mum’s been doing it for years. Place the yoghurt in a bowl and sprinkle the coconut sugar on top. Cover and refrigerate for a couple of hours. Moisture from the yoghurt will turn the sugar to a caramel liquid on top of the yoghurt.
Cut the pears into wedges and place in the bowl with the coconut oil and vanilla bean paste.
Close the lid. Cook for 35 minutes. The actifry will stir the pears gently as they cook - perfect for popping on before you sit down to dinner.
When the good folk at Tefal asked if I’d like to review an Actifry 2-in-1 I agreed with one condition: they let me give one away to my readers. I’m thrilled they agreed because I am enamoured with mine and I know you are going to love it too.
