With the holidays just around the corner, I know that all of us are a bit nervous about all of the get togethers, parties, and most importantly the not-always-healthy food we’re going to be eating. SO I’ve decided to turn your usual healthy breakfast into an unusual healthy dessert. This yogurt gelée is a great way to turn Greek yogurt into a delectable little dessert mound. And it’s super easy to make! And best of all, this whole dish is very healthy. Greek yogurt is packed with protein and gut-healthy probiotics and is also good for weight management. I’ll also quickly note that I only use Fage Total Greek yogurt in my recipes, and you should too. It’s 100% Greek yogurt and is the #1 yogurt in Greece, with good reason. It’s the most authentic Greek yogurt you can get, unlike some other popular brands. Plus it tastes amazing and has no weird hidden ingredients.


Moreover, walnuts are full of healthy fats that keep you fuller longer, honey is good for weight management, is a good source of energy, and is filled with vitamins and antioxidants. And blueberries are a superfood too! Hence why this dish is in line with the principles of the Mediterranean Diet, which is  increasingly being shown as the best all around diet and lifestyle. What’s more is that this recipe makes enough for 6 delicious little yogurt mounds, which means you can sit down and share them with friends and family as a light and healthy end to a delicious meal. Over dinner my roommate was saying that tomorrow morning he wants to get up early and go buy yogurt and blueberries for breakfast. Well little did he know I had this yogurt gelée and blueberries waiting in the fridge! Needless to say the whole household was very excited to be eating this tonight.

 

Thanks for reading Hellenic News of America

But of course feel free to enjoy this recipe for breakfast too! It’s definitely a good twist on regular yogurt with toppings. I’m not sure how to exactly describe the texture of this gelée, but it’s basically Greek yogurt that just sticks together. Ok, that’s a TERRIBLE description!!! It’s creamy yet firm. Actually, let me ask my roommates…..Ok I’m back!!! According to them, the texture resembles that of flan. So there you have it!

 

This recipe is also great because it’s completely customizable. I decided to top it off with honey, walnuts, and blueberries, but you could also top it with different fruit, or even a fruit coulis or jam. Instead of honey you could also use agave, or maybe even maple syrup! I wouldn’t recommend trying to use regular yogurt for this recipe, however, because I’m not sure the yogurt will come together and become solid in the mold. If you’d like to change the flavor of the yogurt, I can’t stop you from using a flavored Greek yogurt that’s not Fage Total, so please try it if that strikes your fancy! Or you could try mixing in different essential oils into the plain yogurt, such as lemon, or mixing in a fruit coulis or jam. Go crazy!!!! And enjoy!
