Ginger-Yogurt Cream

This gingery cream sauce will turn any fresh fruit into a dessert.

Serves 8

Prep Time 10 min

Total Time 40 min.


  • 1 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped candied ginger
  • 1 tablespoon white rum, (optional)

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Line a sieve with cheesecloth and set it over a bowl. (Alternatively, use a coffee filter lined with filter paper.) Spoon in yogurt and let it drain in the refrigerator until slightly thickened, about 30 to 60 minutes.

Step 2

Whip cream in a chilled small mixing bowl with a whisk or electric mixer to soft peaks. Add the drained yogurt, sugar, ginger and rum, if using; fold gently to mix. Serve immediately or refrigerate, covered, for up to 8 hours.
