Stress Free Yumminess with this Apricot Almond Fool dessert
Apricot Almond Fool is very easy to make and has few ingredients. Within 30min you will find yourself looking at a beautiful sweet yogurt pudding just waiting for a sprinkling of freshly roasted almonds. It is yummy with the almonds raw, however taking those extra couple of minutes to dry fry the nuts is worth every moment. Once roasted the slight crunch and extra smokey flavours work wonders alongside the tangy apricot pudding. For the sweet tooth, try adding a swirl of honey with your apricot almond fool. Sweet and divine.
The only sugar in this recipe is from the Apricots. Rich in soluble fibre, apricots actually help steady blood sugar levels by slowing digestion. They are a great source of potassium and are one of the top fruits for beta-carotene. For the Yogurt I recommend using yogurt that contains “live” bacterial cultures. Yogurt is full of calcium and will support your body against harmful bacteria, as well as help restore gut microflora. Almonds are another great food source. They are full of lots of healthy fats, fibres, protein and magnesium. Of all the nuts, almonds are said to be the most packed with nutrition.
