Spiced Fruit With Cinnamon Sticks

This is a lovely way to enjoy a fresh warm fruit salad.

PREP TIME: 10 mins
COOKING TIME: 8 mins
SERVES: 4 portions

Ingredients
• 4 plums pitted and sliced
• 2 ripe pears cored and sliced
• 100ml unsweetened apple juice
• 25g sultanas
• 1 orange
• 4 slices wholemeal bread
• 1⁄2 tsp ground mixed spice (optional)
• 1 pinch ground cinnamon for sprinkling
• 4 tbsp low fat natural yoghurt

Method
1. Put the plums and pears into a saucepan with the apple juice and 3 tablespoons of water. Add the mixed spice (if using) and sultanas or raisins.
Cook gently for about 10 minutes, until the plums and pears are tender.

2. While they are cooking, remove all the peel and pith from the orange. Slice the flesh into segments, removing all the membrane. Add the segments to the saucepan and stir gently to mix them in, and then share the fruit between 4 serving dishes.

3. Sprinkle the slices of bread with a little ground cinnamon, and then toast them lightly. Top each fruit salad with 1 tablespoon of low fat yoghurt and serve with the cinnamon toast.
