Arty thinks he doesn’t like pears.

He used to eat them pretty much daily, nomming them right down to the core, but then one day he just decided that he didn’t like them any more and refused every time I offered one.

If I want him to eat a pear I have to disguise the taste, and this is the best way I’ve come up with for doing that so far:


  • 1 ripe pear
  • 1/2 cup frozen blackberries
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp honey


  1. Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Serve immediately.

He’s just polished one of these off and asked for seconds, so I’d say the disguise was successful.
