Jeweled Clementines with Vanilla Sauce

You can serve this simple dessert in martini or wine-glasses for an upscale holiday touch. Orange juice is an acceptable substitute for Grand Marnier, but the liqueur is what makes this an elegant dessert.

Cooking Light DECEMBER 2000

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: about 1/2 cup clementine mixture and about 3 tablespoons sauce)

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup Grand Marnier (orange-flavored liqueur)
  • 4 cups clementine sections (about 12 clementines)
  • 1 tablespoon fat-free milk
  • 1 (8-ounce) carton vanilla low-fat yogurt
  • Mint sprigs (optional)

Preparation

Combine sugar and vinegar in a small, heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil; cook 6 minutes or until amber brown. Remove from heat; stir in liqueur.

Place the clementine sections in a large bowl; pour sugar mixture over sections. Cover and chill 2 hours, stirring occasionally. Combine milk and yogurt, stirring with a whisk. Spoon clementine mixture into individual bowls or stemmed glasses, and top with the yogurt mixture. Garnish with mint, if desired.
