It’s finally starting to feel like fall and we’re celebrating with this beautiful Pear & Thyme Fiz. The woodsy flavor of bosc pears works perfectly with fresh thyme. One bundle of herbs will leave you with some leftovers, perfect for cooking up our Ras El Hanout Rainbow Carrots as a side or snack.

While the marigold-studded ice cubes are totally optional, they are a guaranteed hit with any guests plus they’re so easy to make.

Cheers!

method


For Whipped Coconut Cream: Chilling the coconut milk will cause the cream to solidify. Open the chilled coconut milk, and drain off the liquid. Transfer the cream to a mixing bowl, and whisk with a hand mixer until light and airy. Refrigerate while you prepare the remaining ingredients.

To assemble: spread a layer of whipped coconut cream on each slice of toast. Garnish with sliced figs and apricots. Finish with a sprinkle of torn basil and a drizzle of maple syrup. Enjoy!
