Blueberry-Pear Frappé

Sometimes simple things are the best. Here's a little bit of last summers' sunshine that's been waiting in the freezer for me.

1 to 4 servings; it depends, eh? Are you willing to share?
5 minutes prep time

Blueberry Pear Frappe2 cups frozen blueberries
2 cups canned pears in light syrup; about half and half pear to syrup

Put the blueberries and pears in syrup in a blender. Blend thoroughly. Add a little water to thin if necessary. Taste and adjust the proportions if you like. Pour into nice glasses and serve with a straw.

You can substitute pear nectar for the canned pears if you like. It's sad but true; both of these are now likely to be imported. Why? I guess I will start canning some pear nectar myself next fall.

Great use for a brandnewspanking blender, CL!

I'd seen your new blog and hadn't realized it was "you". Glad to see you are still blogging.
