Your New Go-To Dessert, Greek Yogurt

I have an on-going love affair with New York City. The beautiful store windows that leave you in awe, the incredible plays that make you cry, the interesting people that make you realize you are not that cool and, of course, the food. Ah, the food. There is something about the energetic atmosphere that makes me willing to try new dishes. Many years ago while in NYC, I tried Greek yogurt with honey for the first time for dessert. Everyone at my table thought it was disgusting but I was immediately hooked. I have tried it many ways; as a substitute for mayo, as a dollop of "sour cream", and of course for breakfast as well as dessert. As someone that doesn't love meat, I was thrilled to learn that it is packed with protein...and I happen to think it is delicious. That being said, I realize that I am in the minority here.  If you know me at you you know that I rarely share recipes because cooking is just not my thing. So you know I must think this is really worth sharing! Below are two of my favorite recipes that I am willing to bet will change the way you think about Greek yogurt!

A dollop of plain Greek yogurt inside a sliced & pitted peach, 
topped with crushed pistachios & drizzled of local honey.


Coconut flavored Greek yogurt topped with 
crushed dark chocolate and sliced almonds.
