Per serving: 175 kcal/5g fat
Preparation time 15 minutes
4 ripe Conference pears
4fl oz cider or apple juice or use juice of 2 lemons
50g Stilton cheese
50g low-fat soft cheese
1 tbsp 0% fat Greek yogurt

- Peel the pears and slice in half lengthways, then carefully remove the core with the tip of a teaspoon. Dip the pears in the cider/apple or lemon juice to prevent them from discolouring, and set aside.
- Meanwhile, mix the Stilton, low-fat soft cheese and the yogurt together in a small bowl until fairly smooth.
- Now fill the cavities in each of the pear halves with a teaspoon of the cheese mixture and place them on lettuce leaves on serving plates.
- Keep chilled until ready to serve. Serve with a dessert knife and fork.
