angelcot fruit cups

A couple months ago, Priscilla of She’s Cookin made Wonton Fruit Cups for a FBLA meeting.  It was a simple, refreshing wonton and Greek yogurt dessert that showcased the fruit.    I was inspired by Priscilla’s beautiful creation and created my own fruit cups to serve to my friends this weekend.  We had a small BBQ to welcome summer… so these were perfect for a casual gathering.  They’re small, portable and light.    I think they look super cute and it’s so easy to put together!

I topped these Greek yogurt fruit cups with Angelcots and strawberries.  Have you ever heard of an Angelcot? It’s a hybrid of a Moroccan and Iranian apricot variety and it’s been considered the “perfect” apricot. The skin is pale yellow and it’s juicy and sweet. The texture is firmer than an apricot. I like the firmer texture; it’s not mushy or mealy. Frieda’s Specialty Produce sent us a box to sample and soon as I opened the box I could smell the sweet fragrance of the fruit. I couldn’t wait to try it! It’s simply delicious as is so I knew I wanted to serve them up fresh and raw to showcase the delicate yet flavorful fruit.

 Of course you can substitute the fruit for whatever you have on hand… peaches and blueberries, strawberries and mangoes, etc.  The wonton skins adds a crunchy element to the fruit cups, the vanilla Greek yogurt is slightly sweet and tangy and pairs well with the sweet fruit and honey.  It’s a healthy and balanced fruit cup.

Aren't the Angelcots just beautiful? I used Stonyfield Vanilla Greek Yogurt and Cinnamon Infused Honey (the wedding favor from my cousin's wedding). Edible favors are the BEST!

Make sure to serve and devour immediately. The wonton skins are thin and fragile. If not eaten right away the shell will become soggy and chewy.

     
     
     
    

Frieda’s Specialty Produce provided me with samples of Angelcots.  I was not compensated and all opinions are my own.
