Sweet Cherry Sundaes
Allow the frozen yogurt to stand in the refrigerator about 30 minutes before serving so it will be soft enough to scoop. Toast the almonds for a few minutes in a dry skillet on top of the stove.
  • 2 cups frozen pitted sweet cherries, thawed
  • 1/2 cup raspberry spreadable fruit
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch blended with 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 pint vanilla low-fat frozen yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds

1. In a medium saucepan, combine the cherries, spreadable fruit, vinegar, and cornstarch mixture. Bring to a simmer over moderate heat. Cook, stirring, until slightly thickened, about 1 minute.

2. Stir in the almond extract. Let the cherry sauce cool to room temperature.

3. Serve the frozen yogurt topped with the cherry sauce and toasted almonds.
