Vary the fruit juice and fruit puree combinations to develop your own creative desserts according to the seasons. It takes almost two cups of fruit to make one cup of puree. Bananas can be mashed with a fork; other fruits do better in a blender.

If desired, use 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, cinnamon or cardamom in place of lemon or orange rind. Honey may be used in place of the juice concentrate.
