After a heavy meal, this makes a light, refreshing turn around. It can be made with any berry that is available or stone fruit such as peaches. It is not difficult and can be started the day before.
- 4 cups of fruit, hulled or peeled and cut in half
- 1 cup ice cubes
- 1/4 cup whole unblanched almonds
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 3 tbsp. milk
- 2 tbsp. Amaretto
- 2 tsp. slivered unblanched almonds, toasted, for garnish
Place the fruit in a plastic bag and freeze for about 2 hours.
Remove from the freezer and place half the contents in a blender. Add the ice, almonds, sugar, milk and liqueur. Blend this until there is enough room to add the reamaining fruit and blend until smooth.
Divide among 4 serving dishes and garnish with the slivered almonds and serve immediately.
Serve with a Citrus Lace Cookie or Madeleine
