Both pear, ginger and cinnamon oat smoothie and pear sorbet recipes use frozen pears as ingredients. However, cooks can substitute fresh or canned pears for frozen ones in almost every recipe. Make sure to defrost the frozen pears before adding them to other ingredients.
To make the pear, ginger and cinnamon oat smoothie, put 1 cup of diced frozen pears in a blender. Mix 1/4 cup of oats, 1/2 teaspoon of grated ginger and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon in a small bowl, and add the mixture to the pears. Add 1/2 cup of plain, nonfat Greek yogurt, 3/4 cup of milk and 1 tablespoon of honey. Blend the mixture until it becomes smooth.
To make the pear sorbet, put 4 cups of frozen pears, 1/2 cups of water and 1/4 cup of sugar in a blender. Turn it on, start on low, and gradually increase the speed. Add 2 more cups of pears and 1 tablespoon of corn syrup or 1/3 cup of champagne. Turn off the blender, and stir the mixture with a spoon. Pour the mixture into a frozen bowl, and put it in the freezer until the sorbet hardens. Leave the sorbet at room temperature for about 20 minutes before serving it.
