Goji Berry Recipe: Goji-Ginger Almond Pears

This sweet treat combines pears, goji berries, and ginger into a surprisingly healthy dessert that you don’t have to feel guilty about enjoying. Pears are a delicious metabolism booster http://www.dreddyclinic.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=119&t=32822. Anjou, bartlett, and bosc pears taste excellent and work especially well. A tip — pears are best picked a little underripe and stored in a paper bag for a few days to ripen. Adding an apple or banana to the bag helps speed the ripening process.

Ginger http://dreddyclinic.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=33848 has a reputation as a remedy for all sorts of ailments. Upset stomach[1], migraines[2], muscle aches[3] — it seems there isn’t much it can’t handle. It also helps maintain healthy blood pressure[4] and blood sugar levels.[5]

Of course, we can’t forget about the goji berries http://dreddyclinic.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=34083 — a superfood with many health benefits.

One note about the recipe… I prefer arrowroot over cornstarch as a sauce thickener. It makes for a nicer sauce and it’s easier to digest, although a little harder to find. You can substitute cornstarch if you have difficulties locating arrowroot.
