Fresh Pears ~ One of falls favorite healthy treats! Why You Should Eat More Pears

Sometimes it seems like apples get all the love. Don’t you think?

But sweet, juicy pears deserve a spot in your kitchen too, not only for their nutritional status {microbiome friendly fiber, vitamin C, potassium, & phytonutrients-especially when you leave the gorgeous skin on!}, but also because they taste delicious too!

Tips on How to Make the Most Delicious Pear Tart

  1. Save time by making the cashew coconut cream and pear tart crust ahead of time. Store them both in the refrigerator until you are ready to assemble your pear tarts.
  2. You can also make the chai spice mixture ahead of time, & store it in a glass jar. It’s delicious with these recipes too: Chai Apple Pie Paleo Mug Cake & Chai Spice Pumpkin Seed Almond Muesli. Yum!
  3. Choose the juiciest, most delicious pears you can find. I like this pear tart with softer pears, like Bartlett or Comice, but choose whatever pears you love. USA Pears has a great website with information on pear varieties, nutrition, and recipes.

    I love to see the leaves turn a beautiful color or red gold yellow. So lovely.

  8. I have been working on dropping some extra pounds (I guess when you are almost 30 you can’t eat the same as you did when you were in your early 20’s? Who knew!) and have mostly been eating all fresh fruits and veggies with nuts and beans for protein. From time to time I want a dessert and just an apple won’t cut it. This will be perfect!

    This looks fabulous! I missed out on this redux. Pears are one of my favorites for dessert!

    I swear, planning a wedding while keeping up a consistent blog schedule has been tough!

  10. I’m in love with chai spices! As I’ve said, I’m not ready for fall yet, but I’m ready for those fall spices!! Think I’ll make the crust just to eat it! I gotta try making coconut cream w/ cashews too!

    Gorgeous photos as always and such a creative raw dessert (and thank goodness you aren’t a dietitian that doesn’t do dessert.) Ahh, I’m such a summer girl, so I’m usually slightly depressed come fall time but I do love me some apple cider, butternut squash and all the warming spices like these. And college football!

  24. My favorite thing about fall is the cooler weather.

  25. This was my first Recipe ReDux Challenge and I love to see others using fresh, seasonal fruit! I made a similar raw pear treat for my no bake dessert, except I stuffed my pears with almond butter, pecans, and spices. Your tart looks so tasty!

  26. Favorite thing about fall is all the good smells coming from the kitchen this time of year
