Lavender Grilled Pears
Hello & Happy Wednesday!
If there is one thing I’m obsessed with regardless of the season, it’s grilled.. anything! Grilled onions, peppers, mushrooms, lettuce, and especially fruit are my weekly go to!
While for some people grilled fruit resonates as a summer concept, you can absolutely enjoy grilled fruit any time of the year. Depending on the season you can modify the ingredients that accompany the grilled fruit, and boom, you have the perfect low calorie vegan dessert!
What I love about grilled fruit is that the ingredients are always accessible, affordable, grilling provides a hint of smoke, more aesthetic appeal, you can grill any variety of fruit you crave minus berries, and you can “PEAR” it with coconut cream to provide an effortless dessert that packs minimal added sugar and lots of flavor!
If you’re looking for that perfect timeless vegan concept and have an affinity for lavender..
You have to try my recipe for vegan Grilled Lavender Pears with coconut cream!
