Poached Pears With Brown Sugar & Coconut Milk Sauce

Poahed Pears With Brown Sugar and coconut milk sauce

Poached Pears are delicious desserts; it looks fancy, elegant, and yet effortless to make. If you check Pinterest, you will find the dessert comes with many recipes, such as Poached pears with red wine sauce, Vanilla, and Cinnamon sauce, and the most exciting ingredients are Chai and Whiskey Poached Pears. As impressive as it is, I haven't got the chance to try it; I'm curious about the taste of chai mixed with whiskey; I'm sure it is delicious, and believe me, one of these days, I'll try the recipe for sure.

It's been a while I've wanted to make a new recipe for these delightful-looking Poached Pears. Finally, I come up with my recipe, and I get inspiration from one of Indonesia's delectable desserts, Kolak. It has coconut milk and plantains banana, so I thought if I pair coconut milk with pear, it will be tasty. And since this is a Fall season, it means sweet and Juicy pears are in abundance — time to take Pear to a different level of adventures. And make it more flavorsome by letting it soak on Brown sugar and Coconut milk sauce.

And I was right! Adding coconut milk in the Poached Pear recipe is just a marvelous idea; with a bit of twist here and there and add-on ingredients, the dessert comes up delicious and creamy. The tender pears are lovely, poached in brown sugar, Cinnamon, and Vanilla bean. Finally, drizzle with coconut brown sugar sauce is just going to amuse your taste bud.

Since Thanksgiving is coming, it'll be a perfect dessert to make for this special occasion. Let your family and friends take on their palate journey to an exotic mouth-watering indulgent dessert.
