A Fruity Way to End the Meal
1 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
2 tablespoons crystallized ginger, finely chopped
4 small navel oranges, peeled
8 ripe strawberries, hulled (other berries or chopped fruit may be substituted)
2 medium-sized bananas, peeled
Place the yogurt in a small bowl. Add the ginger and stir briskly for one minute or until the yogurt has a saucelike consistency. Set aside. Cut each orange crosswise into five slices. Cut each strawberry lengthwise into four slices. Cut each banana crosswise into 14 slices. Spoon 1/4 cup ginger sauce onto each of four eight-inch dessert plates and spread the sauce over each plate. Arrange the fruit equally on each of the plates and serve.
