A Supper Sauce for Fruit

Because it was a hot day, something cool and refreshing seemed perfect for a simple supper last evening. Beautiful strawberries, kiwi fruit, and bananas sliced and sweetened with the sweet herb stevia made a pretty fruit salad for our meal. It was all topped off with a pear sauce that added exactly the right sweetness and creaminess. Although the spearmint sprig was for garnish, I couldn't help but nibble it with every bite or so. It added just the right amount of 'perk' to the fruity combination. Delicious!

Pear Sauce

2 cups soft tofu
2 cups canned pears
1 cup pear juice (from jar of pears)
2 Tbsp. honey
1 tsp. cinnamon

Whiz in blender until creamy and smooth. Pour over individual fruit salad servings (or fold into entire fruit salad for a creamy salad). Garnish with a strawberry piece and fresh mint. Enjoy! You'll never miss the whipped cream!


  1. Now that does sound light and yummy for a hot day. I'll remember that if one should show up. (It's a stew day here.)

    Love your header and all the playing with light that you were doing...simply lovely and homey.

  2. Ooooooooooo, La Tea Dah, I love your new header. It's so, summery! Great job!

    Sauce sounds interesting. Never tried pear sauce. Thanks for sharing. Susan

  3. That sounds wonderful!

  4. Your dessert looks so yummy. My quilt retreat in Sept will be a harvest/pear theme and this would be enjoyed by my ladies!
