You can increase this recipe to 500gr Pear, 500gr frozen Pear juice, 500gr Frozen milk cubes and 80 gr Medjool dates. This will make 1.5 Litres of sorbet. 

Flat trays or snap lock bags are great to freeze milk in. They allow to to chop them into pieces easily and also you dont get the film layer of milk in your ice cube trays.
