Yogurt dessert with a delicious topping

Sometimes, I enjoy eating a nice bowl of yogurt in the evening, I have tried most of the yogurts that are sold in the supermarkets but they are to sour for me.  Butttt the market I have close by has finally placed on their refrigerator shelves Original Greek Yogurt. I was truly happy with this discovery, because I kind of gave up on eating yogurt a couple of months ago and was definitely not happy about this. 

Anyway, I love to add different toppings like honey and walnuts, or fruits instead of eating plain yogurt.  I wanted to share a completely different recipe topping with you which I found a few years ago while watching one of the cooking shows.  I thought to myself that this was just an absolute must try.  It is scrumptious!!! 

So, if you like to live dangerously, and by this I  mean trying new flavors/tastes then this topping will completely astonish you with the variation of dried fruits simmered with Vanilla, Cinnamon and a few more extra ingredients. 🙂


350 grams Water

200 grams Sugar

300 grams Yogurt (3 servings)

1/2 teaspoon Vanilla extract

1 Cinnamon Stick

4 Lemon Peels

3 Orange Peels

5 pieces of dried Figs (sliced)

5 pieces of dried Apricots (sliced)




In a small sauce pan add water, and sugar, boil on medium to high heat.  



When  the water and sugar start to boil add in the Cinnamon stick, Vanilla extract, Lemon and Orange peels. 


Add in the dried fruits and boil for 1/2 hour and until sugar and water have thicken.

Top your favorite plain yogurt with this topping.  You can use any type of dried fruit you like eating, I used figs and apricots because that’s what I had in my pantry. 🙂
