Fruited Apricots with Lemon-Amaretto Sauce

Yay! The first fresh apricots of the season are at the store. Try this simple dessert to highlight the yummy little fruit.

In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon amaretto (Disaronno is vegan, according to the company), 3/4 tsp. grated lemon rind, 1/2 tsp. fresh-squeezed lemon juice and 4 ounces of lemon soy yogurt (such as Whole Soy).

Slice 3 apricots in half, and remove their pits. Place 3 apricot halves on each of two dessert plates. Spoon 1 tablespoon blackberries into the center of each apricot half.

Top each of the two servings with 3 tablespoons of the soy yogurt mixture, an additional tablespoon blackberries and 1 tablespoon slivered almonds (which you can toast first, if you like).

Each of the two servings is 170 calories.

lemon $0.50
apricots $1.04
blackberries $2.00
