In this recipe pears and raspberries are sautéed until soft and served warm with protein enhanced coconut yogurt. Cooking the fruit brings out the sweetness and makes it easier to digest. The fat and protein in the yogurt balances the sweet fruit.

It’s a very simple breakfast and can be made in 5 minutes.

Ingredients and Substitutions

Ripe pears – Pears are sweeter when they ripen until just a little soft. Apples can also be used. 

Raspberries – I like organic frozen raspberries. I keep them in my freezer to have on hand. Fresh raspberries are also good. Blueberries or strawberries are delicious too!

Ghee – I like the taste and health benefits of ghee but coconut oil can be used if you’re vegan. 

Cinnamon –  This spice provides a sweet taste along with the fruit. No additional sweetener is needed.

Coconut Yogurt – Any type of yogurt can be used. I like coconut yogurt because it’s dairy free. 

Collagen – For extra protein I mix a scoop of collagen into the yogurt.  If you’re vegan mix in hemp protein or hemp seeds. The hemp seeds with give the yogurt more texture.

What Is Collagen

Collagen is your body’s most abundant protein. Taking it as a supplement – by adding it to  yogurt like we do here – has been proven to help keep your joints strong.

It’s a very good protein powder that doesn’t have any weird taste and dissolves nicely in hot or cold beverages or yogurt. It’s really smooth and tasteless. It’s also easy to digest.

Many people like it as a beauty supplement to help smooth wrinkles and increase skin moisture, thicken hair and other fabulous things like that.

Enhancing the yogurt with collagen or hemp increases the protein.

Eating a high protein breakfast helps you feel full longer during the day and leads to less snacking at night.

To make the recipe: Heat a little ghee or coconut oil in a saute pan.  Add sliced pears, cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Salt enhances the sweet taste of the fruit. 

Saute 2-3 minutes until just beginning to soften.

Add frozen raspberries, stir and saute until the raspberries begin to soften, about 1 minutes.

That’s it, pour into a bowl.  Top with the coconut yogurt-collagen mix and enjoy.

The recipe can be doubled for 2 people. It tastes best made fresh and served warm.

Sauteed Pears and Raspberries with Coconut Yogurt is so good. It’s warm, fruity, high protein, naturally sweet, simple and quick.
