Summer Cherries Jubilee

Yield 4 servings (serving size: about 1/3 cup cherry sauce and 1/2 cup yogurt)
A cherry pitter will save you preparation time and prevent a red-stained thumb. If you don't want to use the wine, cranberry juice produces a beautiful color and a delicious, albeit different, result.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups pitted sweet cherries
  • 1/2 cup Cabernet Sauvignon or other dry red wine
  • 1/4 cup cherry preserves
  • 1 tablespoon amaretto (almond-flavored liqueur)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cups vanilla low-fat frozen yogurt
