Spiced Pears with Pecans

As prepared by Good Life Eats,

I love yogurt for a snack. It's healthy -- full of protein and calcium -- and it satisfies my intense sweet tooth almost as well as a cookie. 

Yoplait Greek Vanilla Honey is my new favorite. It's so creamy smooth and I like that Greek Yogurt has more protein than traditional yogurt.

I especially love Greek Vanilla Honey Yogurt topped with these Spiced Pears and Pecans to turn it from a snack to a full blown dessert. It's officially fall now and I'm ready to start enjoying delicious fall fruits. Juicy pears are one of my favorites. This topping just screams autumn with the combination of cinnamon, cardamom, maple syrup and pecans.


If you really want to take this guilt-free dessert over the edge you can add a splash of vanilla to the pears and serve it with some Cascadian Farms Granola. You can thank me later.
