Sunshine Fruits with Apricot Sauce Recipe

  • Apricot Sauce:
  • 1 cup fresh apricot halves
  • 1/4 cup nonfat apricot yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon honey, or more to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice concentrate
  • 1 cube ice
  • Fruit:
  • 1 pint strawberries, halved
  • 2 kiwifruits, peeled, halved lengthwise, and thinly sliced
  • 1 large orange, sectioned
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tablespoon toasted slivered almonds
  • Julienned orange peel
  1. To Prepare Apricot Sauce: In a blender, combine the apricots, yogurt, honey (to taste), and almond extract.
  2. In a cup, sprinkle the gelatin over the orange juice concentrate. Let stand to soften. Warm by microwaving for a few seconds or by standing the cup in warm water. Add to the blender with the ice cube. Process on high speed until the sauce has a smooth, fluffy consistency. Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.
  3. To Prepare Fruit: In a large bowl, combine the strawberries, kiwifruits, orange sections, and grated peel. Refrigerate until needed. Just before serving, slice and stir in the banana.
  4. Divide the fruit among 6 dishes; top with the sauce. Sprinkle with the almonds and julienned peel.
