Caramelized Pear Yogurt Mousse

Makes 4 Servings


  • 2 cans (15 ounces) Pacific Northwest Canned Pear halves, in juice
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. each ground cinnamon and ground ginger
  • 1-1/3 cups fat free prepared vanilla pudding
  • 2/3 cup Greek-style vanilla non-fat yogurt

    Preheat oven to 375°F. Drain pears reserving juice for another use. Place pear halves cut side down on baking sheet; brush each with oil. Combine sugar and spices; sprinkle evenly over pear halves. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until pears are caramelized, turning once. Remove from oven and cool. Set aside 4 caramelized pear halves and chill until ready to use. Dice remaining pear halves. Combine pudding, yogurt and diced caramelized pear halves in medium bowl; fold gently until well mixed. Divide mousse between 4 serving dishes. Chill until ready to serve. Top each dish with one caramelized pear half before serving.
