Pear and Lemonade Frappe

Looking for a delicious and healthy drink to cool you down? Look no further than this Pear and Lemonade Frappe! This simple recipe is packed with vitamins, thanks to the fabulous pears that are in season right now.

Did you know? Not all pears are available year-round. But fear not, pear enthusiasts! Pear prime season is from August to October, offering a variety to choose from. Bartlett, Bosc, and Comice are some of the most popular options.

Pear-fect Timing: Pear Season Explained

Pear season kicks off in late summer with the arrival of Bartlett pears (also known as Williams’ Bon Chrétien or Williams’ pears). These are the most common pears in North America. Bosc and Comice come into season in the fall and last through winter, while Anjou pears wait until winter to grace store shelves.

The Wonderful World of Pears

Pears are a nutritional powerhouse! They’re an excellent source of dietary fiber, vitamins A and C, and are naturally sweet. Most pears are picked slightly underripe to allow them to develop their full flavor at home.

Picking the Perfect Pear

When selecting your pears, keep an eye out for undamaged fruits with good color. This ensures you get the best flavor and taste, whether you enjoy them whole or turn them into a delightful drink like this Frappe!

From Pear to Perfection: Tips and Tricks

Juicing pears is a breeze! For the richest flavor, wait until your pears are ripe but still firm. You can juice them on their own or combine them with lemonade, like in this recipe, for a double dose of vitamin C. Fresh lemonade is key here for the most natural and delicious flavor.

Making the Pear and Lemonade Frappe

This Frappe is all about refreshment, simplicity, and a healthy dose of vitamins. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Cold, fresh lemonade
  • Fresh ginger
  • Ice
  • Optional: Sweetener (if your lemonade isn’t sweet enough)

Here’s a breakdown of the ingredients for the Pear and Lemonade Frappe:

  • Pear: The star of the show! Choose a ripe but firm pear for the best flavor and texture in your Frappe. Common varieties like Bartlett, Bosc, or Comice would work well.
  • Fresh-squeezed lemonade, sweetened: This adds a refreshing citrus base and a vitamin C boost. If you prefer a less sweet drink, you can use unsweetened lemonade and add your own sweetener to taste.
  • Fresh ginger root: Ginger adds a spicy kick that complements the pear and lemonade flavors. You can adjust the amount based on your preference for spiciness.
  • Ice (optional): Perfect for a truly frosty Frappe. Use crushed ice for a smoother texture.
  • Honey or other sweetener (optional): If your lemonade isn’t sweet enough or you prefer a sweeter drink, you can add honey, agave nectar, or another sweetener of your choice.

Feeling adventurous? Pop those pears in the fridge for a couple of hours before prepping them. This extra chill will make for the ultimate thirst-quenching drink!
