  • Guar gum is a natural thickening and stabilizing ingredient. If you don’t have guar gum the pear whip will still be tasty, just not quite as firm.
  • Left over pear juice can be enjoyed as a beverage, just as it is.
  • Pear juice can be added to a smoothie, or mix it with Perrier water for a tasty beverage.
  • Use pear juice instead of the water in the No Bake Pumpkin Pie Mousse.
  • Left over pear juice can also be frozen.
