    1. Dry roast flaked almonds in a pan over medium heat until golden, tossing to prevent burning. Transfer to a plate.
    2. Halve peaches and cut into slices. Place in a bowl; drizzle with lemon juice to prevent discolouration. Add blackberries and lychees. Combine orange juice, marsala, ground nutmeg and icing sugar in a bowl. Drizzle mixture over fruit. Place mixture in serving bowls.
    3. Place amaretti biscuits in a freezer bag. Seal, place on a flat surface and crush with a rolling pin to make fine crumbs. Combine yogurt, vanilla sugar and amaretti crumbs. Spoon over fruit. Add flaked almonds and mint leaves.

    cook's tip

    To make vanilla sugar, push a dried vanilla bean into a jar of sugar. After about two weeks, take it out. The vanilla flavour and aroma will have permeated the sugar.
