Kiwi in strawberry sauce
This simple-to-prepare Strawberry Sauce is especially great using the first fresh berries of the season. In addition to kiwis, I like to use it on other fruits like pineapple, sliced peaches, or pears as well as on crepes, pancakes, and hot cereal. Make this as a snack for yourself or multiply the recipe to serve your family or friends at brunch this weekend.
For the kiwi
½ cup vanilla yogurt (or substitute ice cream or frozen yogurt)
1 kiwi, peeled and cut in half lengthwise, each half cut into ¼-inch slices
For the sauce
¼ cup sliced fresh strawberries
1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
½ teaspoon honey
Dash of ground nutmeg
To complete the recipe
Sprigs of fresh mint for garnish
Spoon the vanilla yogurt into a dessert bowl and top with the kiwi slices. Puree all of the sauce ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth. Pour over the kiwi and yogurt.
