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

  • 1-2 teaspoons of Greek thyme honey per serving
