Make sauce. Peel ginger root and slice into 10 slices. Pour orange juice into a small saucepan. Add SPLENDA® Granulated and ginger root. Bring to a rolling boil over medium high heat. Boil 10 - 12 minutes or until orange juice has reduced to 2 tablespoons. Remove sauce from heat. Remove ginger slices using a fork and discard. Set sauce aside.

Remove sauce from heat and mix in a blender 15 - 20 seconds or until smooth and lighter in colour. Set aside.
