A nice twist on traditional hot cider, made with pear juice, tea, and Torani Sugar-Free Classic Caramel Syrup from Target. This slow cooker recipe will warm your insides and make your house smell like ‘fall’. Serve at holiday parties for a no-fuss drink!
When I think of fall certain smells come to mind. Some of my favorites are cinnamon, apple, and orange. In reality, what gives most things that ‘fall’ smell is the spice blend. Typically, this includes cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, allspice, and ginger.
You could literally throw sliced apples and oranges into a pot of water with these spices and the smell of fall will smack you in the face.
Throwing a fall or winter gathering? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could kill two birds with one stone?
Instead of simmering spices, why not make a warm and cozy tea that smells just as great!
Have you noticed how people often forget about pears with the hype of pumpkin and apples during the fall? That’s a mistake!
Pears go so well with fall flavors so I wanted to give this underdog a chance to shine.
This Slow Cooker Caramelly Pear Hot Tea is perfect for chilly fall and winter gatherings. Just throw everything into your slow cooker and your whole house will smell amazing in no time.
To make things easier, the base of this recipe is organic pear juice.
You can find this in ‘healthy’ grocery stores that specialize in organic and natural foods. If you aren’t near one of those stores most regular grocery stores have pear juice in the baby section.
We also opted for Asian Pears. The main reason for this is that they are round and are more uniform when cut. Any kind of pear will work, though!
Remember, how I said pears pair well with fall flavors? Well, caramel goes great with pears! Just as tasty as the caramel apple blend, IMO.
To give this Slow Cooker Caramelly Pear Hot Tea that caramel flair I used Torani Sugar-Free Classic Caramel Syrup from Target. It is made with simple ingredients like Splenda and is completely calorie, carb, and sugar-free.
Dark caramelized brown sugar flavor reminiscent of hard caramel candies with none of the calories!
Torani mixes so well into desserts, drinks, and this Slow Cooker Caramelly Pear Hot Tea. The creamy caramel undertone is to die for!
They offer SO MANY different flavors that mix easily into almost any drink. It makes it super easy to create a new, delicious drink recipe that’s completely you!
