“Most pear ice recipes I'd seen look good are either too labor-intensive and/or sugar-heavy. Pears are naturally sweet enough for my taste, but I added honey because of its health-boosting properties and because sweetness diminishes with freezing. This calls for canned pears that were canned in water or juice, not syrup or added sugars. Prep/cook time doesn't include freezing time, I'd freeze overnight.”
2 cups

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (14 ounce) can pear halves in natural juice (NOT syrup!)
  • 1 12 teaspoons honey
  • 14 teaspoon almond extract
  • 14 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 dash cardamom


  1. Pour the entire can of pears-- juice and all-- into a blender or food processor. Pulse until you reach the desired consistency, I do a few rough chops to get them mostly pureed but still a little bit of fruit in there.
  2. Add the honey and spices and pulse again.
  3. Pour into ice pop molds for pear-sicles, or silicone cups or ramekins for Italian ice style, and freeze for at least 4-6 hours or overnight. This yields about two generous servings, or 5-6 2-oz ice pops.
