Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 4 cups sliced, peeled peaches
  • 1 cup peach juice
  • 1 cup mango juice
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons liquid honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons amaretto liqueur
  • 2 tablespoons apricot brandy

Method

In small skillet, toast almonds over medium heat, stirring often, until golden, about 3 minutes. Set aside.

In large saucepan, combine peaches, peach juice, orange juice, lime juice, honey, ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, salt and cloves; bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until peaches are very soft, about 12 minutes. Let cool.

In batches in blender or food processor, purée until smooth. Transfer to bowl; stir in buttermilk, and amaretto (if using). Cover and refrigerate until cold, about 4 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 2 days.) Ladle into bowls. Sprinkle with toasted almonds.
