Last weekend, my twin sister and I celebrated our birthday together. A wonderful thing about having a twin is that you get to share the celebration with your favorite person in the whole world! The bond for twins is so strong, and something I definitely treasure.
As we've done for years, my husband, Jay, and my twin's husband, Costas, went out to eat last Saturday night. Well, I happened to mention how much I like yogurt, and, of course, the Greeks are known for their outstanding yogurt. Being 100% Greek, Costas mentioned this delicious idea that I'd like to share with you...
Well, after trying many brands of yogurt, my quest is now over! I found the best yogurt ever! Great consistency, best value for health, and best overall taste.
Here's a truly Greek way to prepare a dessert or snack that the whole family will love.
This is what you'll need:
- One (or two for large families) 35 ounce Fage (pronounced Fa-yeh) brand yogurt. All natural, nonfat, Greek strained yogurt―
- One 12 or 16 oz. bag of English walnuts
- One 16 oz. jar of your local honey (I use pure unprocessed clover honey from Hays Apiary in Smithsburg, MD ―available at McCutcheon's in Frederick, MD)
For each dish:
- 1/3 cup yogurt*
- 1 - 2 tsp. honey
- 1-2 tsp. walnuts
*Remember that this yogurt isn't sweetened, so you can add as much honey as you need for sweetness.
Enjoy! I hope your family will love this nutritious idea. Thanks to Costas, I'm learning many new things about the excellent Mediterranean (Greek) diet.
Have a wonderful day. God bless you!
