Autumn is fast-approaching, but we’re still feeling the intense warmth of summer. We find the best way to stay refreshed is with a soothing dessert made with plain madzoon (yogurt).
Here’s one of our go-to treats made with homemade yogurt (or a good quality store-bought version), topped with fresh fruit of your choice, honey and nuts. Simple and sweet.
|Homemade madzoon (yogurt) with chopped cherries, pecans, and a drizzle of honey|
Yield: 2 servings
1 cup plain yogurt, homemade (preferred) or good quality store-bought
1 tsp. vanilla
½ tsp. cinnamon
A drizzle of honey
¼ cup seasonal fruit (fresh berries, cherries, peaches, or dried fruit, such as currants, or apricots)
3 Tbsp. walnuts, pecans or pistachios, chopped
1. Mix together yogurt, vanilla, cinnamon and honey. (Note: honey can be drizzled on top before serving.)
2. Chill until ready to serve.
3. Just before serving, gently fold in nuts and fruit- or just sprinkle them on top.
