  • 3 cups water
  • ¾ cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup Chai Harder
  • 1 cinnamon quill
  • 3 cardamom pods, crushed
  • 4 firm pears, peeled


  • Poach the Pears: In a saucepan over high heat, bring water, maple syrup, Chai Addict, cinnamon and cardamom to the boil. Add the pears, reduce to medium heat and cover snugly with a wet baking paper, weighed down with a small plate. Simmer for 30 minutes or until soft.

  • The Syrup: Gently remove pears, set aside and bring syrup to a rolling boil for a further 20 minutes to thicken. Spoon the syrup over the pears.

  • To serve: Enjoy with coconut ice cream, granola or porridge.
