  • 1/2 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds

  • 1/4 cup flaked coconut (I use dried but if you can find fresh ... be my guest!)

Directions

  • Remove the yogurt from the sieve and place in a large bowl. Add the orange zest, orange juice and honey and mix well.
  • Add the nuts and prunes, mix well.
  • Finish by adding the coconut extract and flaked coconut. Mix well and cover and refrigerate for an hour before serving.
  • Enjoy!
  • Note: This recipe will yield approximately 3 cups of yogurt.

Notes

This recipe is my adaptation of one from The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook by Ina Garten. It's a wonderful dish to serve for brunch and it's a healthy snack as well.
