I’m celebrating Ina Garten‘s birthday today by making one of her desserts. Actually, I think she serves Berries and Peaches with Honey Vanilla Yogurt for breakfast, but the luscious combination of fruit, yogurt, and honey with a hint of vanilla sounds like dessert to me.
Close your eyes for a moment. Pretend it’s summer and you have easy access to fresh, plump, juicy strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and peaches. Feel the warm sun on your face… Now open your eyes and pull out whatever frozen fruit you have in the freezer.
Did you know that eating local honey can help lessen the severity of allergies? The CompostMaster, who suffers horribly, stocks up on local honey whenever he can find it. He loves combining this honey-yogurt mixture with granola for a quick snack if he’s not in the mood for fruit.
Berries and Peaches with Honey Vanilla Yogurt
A luscious combination of berries and peaches with a sauce made from plain yogurt, a touch of honey, and a hint of vanilla.
- 1 cup plain nonfat yogurt (not Greek-style)
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup blueberries (thawed, if frozen)
- 1/2 cup raspberries (thawed, if frozen)
- 1/2 cup sliced peaches (thawed, if frozen)
- 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
Combine the yogurt, honey, and vanilla extract in a small bowl. Mix well.
Gently mix the blueberries, raspberries, and peaches together in a large bowl.
Spoon the fruit into serving bowls and top with the yogurt mixture and flaxseed.
If your fruit is fresh and ripe, skip the honey and save yourself some carbs.
