3 tbsp (45 ml) cornflour
3 tbsp (45 ml) cocoa powder

2 cups (500 ml) low-fat milk
1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla essence
4 small (400 g) ripe pears with the skin, cut into wedges
¼ cup (60 ml) chopped raw almonds
- Mix sugar, cornflour, cocoa and cinnamon with a little milk to form a paste.

- Divide hot mixture into 4 small bowls or cups. Allow to cool and chill in the fridge.
