Recipe courtesy of Delicious Living magazine.
In lieu of ice cream or custard, end a meal with a light and refreshing yogurt-based organic dessert with almonds.
1 quart plain nonfat or regular yogurt
3 tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup sliced almonds
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 tablespoons honey, divided
Mint leaves, for garnish
1. Spoon yogurt into a sieve lined with a paper towel or cheesecloth and set over a bowl. Refrigerate and let drain for 2 hours.
2. Place sugar in a medium nonstick saucepan over medium-high heat until liquefied (watch carefully to avoid burning). Add almonds and sauté until light brown, stirring constantly. Spread out almonds on a piece of foil to cool. Dust with cinnamon and chop coarsely.
3. Blend almond extract, vanilla extract, and 1 tablespoon honey into yogurt. Divide yogurt into four parfait glasses. Drizzle with remaining honey and sprinkle with candied almonds. Garnish with mint.
