Stone Fruit Bowls
A drupe, more commonly known as stone fruit, is so named because it contains a stone (or a pit) inside. Many popular stone fruits, such as cherries, plums, peaches, nectarines, mangoes, and dates are in season in late summer.
- 3 tablespoons ground chia seeds
- 1.5 cups fresh or thawed frozen diced mango
- 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- 2 pitted soft dates, soaked for 10 minutes in hot water and then drained
- 3 ripe apricots, pitted and quartered
- 3 ripe plums, pitted and cut into 1-inch pieces
- 2 ripe peaches or nectarines, pitted and cut into 1-inch pieces
- 2 cups pitted cherries
- In a small bowl, combine the chia seeds and 1/4 cup water and mix well. Set aside for 10 minutes to thicken.
- In a food processor or a blender, combine the mango, lemon juice, dates, and the chia mixture and process until smooth. Divide equally among four small glass dessert bowls. Cover and refrigerate until firm, 4 hours overnight.
- Combine the apricots, plums, peaches, and cherries in a large bowl. Toss gently to combine.
- To serve, spoon the fruit evenly over the chilled mango mixture. Serve immediately.
