Updated May 6, 2005

Ingredients

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons grated gingerroot
  • 1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple in juice, drained
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 pears
  • 2 red apples
  • 2 golden apples
  • 1 tablespoon slivered almonds, toasted and finely chopped

Steps

  • 1
    Beat cream cheese, yogurt, honey and gingerroot in medium bowl with spoon until creamy. Fold in pineapple. Cover and refrigerate about 1 hour to blend flavors.

    Mix orange juice and water. Slice pears and apples. Dip pears and apples in orange juice mixture; drain.
