Does anything spell summer more than a platter or bowl of fresh strawberries and watermelon? But then you think, hummm, how to dress this up beyond the usual shower of mint or basil? I came up with a fast, easy-peezy sour cream sauce, and a dairy-free coconut-almond sauce that fancies up that quick, refreshing bowl or glass of fresh fruit. I think you're going to love it - I sure did!
Sour Cream Sauce:
1 cup sour cream, fat free or not
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
1/8-1/4 t. almond extract
Mix together well and drizzle over glasses of fresh fruits and berries. Garnish with edible flowers , mint, lemon balm, or rosemary.
Cream of Coconut Sauce with almond:
1/2 cup cream of coconut ( the sweetened,very thick kind)
5 T. coconut milk ( unsweetened, somewhat thick from a can)
1 T. fresh lemon juice
a few drops almond extract
This sauce doesn't need any extra sugar. Just mix well, and drizzle over fruits and berries.
Garnish with herb leaves or edible flowers.
Hope you enjoy - and it's great to be back after 8 days without my computer!
