In Greek: γιαούρτι με μέλι, yee-ah-OOR-tee meh MEH-lee

In many Greek restaurants, this dessert is served compliments of the house. Both yogurt and honey are great for the digestive system, and the combined tastes are delicious. It's worth the effort to find the original thick Greek yogurt available at Greek and ethnic markets, or make your own thick yogurt using regular, low fat or nonfat regular brands.

Because yogurt is such a popular breakfast dish around the world, try this as an early morning starter as well!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes


  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup of strained Greek yogurt per serving
  • 1-2 teaspoons of Greek thyme honey per serving
  • crushed walnuts and/or almonds (optional)


In individual serving bowls, drizzle honey over the yogurt and sprinkle with walnuts and/or almonds if desired.

No other yogurt will do!, Member lsiegel

I'm so glad to see this recipe on the website. Until recently, I tried to have my Greek ""yogurt and honey"" using all different kinds of yogurt, but nothing but the real thing will do. Now that Greek yogurt is as easily available as other yogurts, there's no reason not to have it. The taste is simply unbeatable, and the sour mixed with the sweet of the honey is a match made in heaven! I think it's the simplicity that makes it. Try it and you'll never go back to those other yogurts you've been eating!
