  • 1 (15.25 oz) can California apricot halves, canned in own juice, drained with juice reserved
  • 1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 3 mint sprigs (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger *
  • 2 Tbsp orange liqueur (such as Grand Marnier) *

Directions:

Thinly slice 1 apricot half. Reserve to use as a garnish.

In food processor, purée remaining apricots with yogurt. Add enough reserved juice to make a thick soup, up to about 1/2 cup juice. Add spice and/or liqueur, and process just to blend.

Pour into bowl, and place in freezer for 20 minutes, or refrigerate about 1 hour until chilled. Ladle into shallow soup bowls, and garnish with reserved sliced apricot and mint, if desired.
