This Poire Belle Helene is another recipe in our series of traditional desserts made Vegan and Common Allergen Free. The Poire Belle Helene is a French dessert dating from 1864, created by Auguste Escoffier. It is traditionally pears poached in sugar served with vanilla ice cream with chocolate syrup.
We have made ours with Madhava agave nectar in place of sugar, and chocolate vegan ice cream, because we just can't get enough chocolate.
