 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2   c            Dried apricots
    1 1/2   c            Orange juice
    3       c            Low-fat yogurt
    1       t            Grated orange rind
   Serve with fresh fruit or berries or garnish with a fresh mint leaf.
   In small saucepan or microwave dish, combine apricots with orange
   juice. Bring to a boil.  Cover and simmer over medium heat for 10 to
   12 minutes.
   OR cover and microwave at High power for 7 minutes, or until apricots
   are softened.  Puree in food processor or blender, or pass through
   food mill. Let cool.
   Combine apricot mixture, yogurt and orange rind.  Mix well.  Freeze
   in an ice-cream machine or transfer to shallow metal cake pan. Freeze
   until almost solid.  Break into big chunks and beat with electric
   mixer or food processor until smooth.
   Transfer to airtight container and freeze until firm (about 30 min to
   1 hour).  Let stand in refrigerator for 15 to 30 minutes or until
   softened before serving.  MY NOTE:  3/4 cup size individual yogurt
   containers are a good way to freeze serving size portions.  Use a
   strong ice cream scoop to divide up for 2 small servings.
