Greek Yogurt with Honey


Greek yogurt has got very thick and creamy texture as there is an extra step in making Greek yogurt compared to the normal yogurt, which result in its thickness. This extra step is that after the milk is heated and cultured, it is then left in muslin cloth, so that the whey filters whey out of the yogurt. Because of this extra step in the process, Greek yogurt is less runny than other types of yogurt.

Yogurt is a quick dessert that I eat almost everyday. I have tasted many different flavours, sometimes, I think the simpler, the better it is. In Greece, Greek yogurt with honey (Yiaourti me Meli: γιαούρτι με μέλι) is served at all the restaurants. As simple as it sounds, the combination of these two are just delicious! I remember I had it almost everyday, for breakfast too!

Well, of course, apart from the yogurt, Greek are famous for their honey. Greek honey is internationally known to be a special honey. Thyme honey is by far the best honey. When I was in Greece, I bought 2 bottles of honey, one Thyme honey and one normal Greek honey. Since I come back from Greece, I have been making this simple dessert. I have tried a few Greek-style yogurt, but, the real Greek yogurt that I am able to find at the supermarket is still Fage Total Greek Yogurt. There is no comparison with other Greek-style yogurt that I bought, which most of them do not assemble the texture of Greek yogurt.

This kind of day to day dessert can be prepared so quickly, you’ll see that nice things can sometimes the easiest things to do! 🙂
