Greek Yogurt with Red Wine-Infused Dates, Toasted Walnuts & Honey
Saved 7/09/09 to Kitchen Goddess


Yummy yogurt, fruit & oatmeal all mixed together. I got this recipe in a newspaper a few years ago. I make it a LOT. Love it.




1 cup yogurt cheese (directions to make below)
1 cup milk
2 tsp lemon juice
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup oatmeal, muesli or rolled oats whatever you care to use
1 peeled/cored shredded apple
1 cup strawberries, diced
1 cup blueberries
1 cup raspberries


Directions for Yogurt Cheese:

Use an all natural, Balkan style yogurt for this. I use Astro Balkan Style Yogurt in Canada, not sure what variety is available in the States.

Put a strainer into another bowl. Take the entire container (2 cups ish) of yogurt and put into the strainer (you can use cheesecloth to make sure the yogurt doesn't go through the holes if they are big)... allow the yogurt to sit at room temp for at least 2 hours. When it is done you will notice almost 2 cups of whey in the bowl! The yogurt will now be a lot thicker.

Directions Cont'd:

Talk the oatmeal, sugar, lemon juice & milk and mix in a small bowl.
Mash half of the strawberries. Combined everything in one big bowl. Cover and put in the fridge for at least an hour prior to eating. This will stay good for up to 5 days in the fridge. If it lasts that long. ;)

Obviously you can change this recipe up to your taste. The main components are the yogurt cheese, oatmeal & fruit. Enjoy!!

Violence - I think that would be good! The added texture of coconut would be awesome.

That looks delicious! I'd have to add some shredded coconut to mine--for some reason, it seems like that would go perfect with this.

kiwi- if you have a Harry & David where you live, they sell vanilla infused sugar in a sort of salt shaker.

they are expensive all over the world, that is why we preserve the aroma like that :)

I am going to try that vanilla sugar. Just need to get my hands on some vanilla beans. They are expensive here

Thank you Kiwi :) pleasure to share :) btw: if i made it - i would even add some vanilla (self made sugar - i.e. you use the real vanilla sticks and then when having dried them - put them into your white sugar - so that sugar will take the aroma of the vanilla) - you add this sugar :) - then as an additional idea - you can use some zests of the lemon - when you have organic lemons - that is very delicious :)

Dear Ladies - in Switzerland there is the Bircher Clinic - that is the original recipe... * 1 Esslöffel Haferflocken - one big spoon of oat flakes * 3 Esslöffel Wasser - 3 big spoons of water * 1-2 Äpfel - samt Haut und Kerngehäuse geraffelt - 1 up to two grated apples including skin and kernels * Saft einer halben Zitrone - juice of half a lemon * 1 Esslöffel gezuckerte Kondensmilch one big spoon of sugared condensed milk mische alles sorgfältig und streue 1 Esslöffel geriebene Nüsse drüber - mix all very carefully and spread some grated nuts over it The Dolder Grand Hotel, Zurich - put a big spoon of whipped cream mixed all very carefully and decorated it with any kind of fruit - The Mariott Hotel in Zurich added all kind of berries to it and also whipped cream in the end it is YOUR decision what you like best - i would roast the nuts slightly and add them a little bit crashed to your Muesli - it simply tastes delicious... :) :FEEDME:

It is, imo. Though probably high in fat due to the yogurt. But better than a bagel w/ cream cheese or something else that is quick! ;)

It sounds interesting. I'm guessing it's pretty healthy too with the fruit and natural yogurt? __ “Fashion fades, only style remains the same.” —Coco Chanel
