Yiaourtoglyko (Greek Yoghurt Dessert)

Caramelized apricots

This is the easiest dessert you can make in less than fifteen minutes and it is very delicious.  All you need to do is whip the heavy cream and combine it with Greek yoghurt and other ingredients. 

You can also serve it with Glyka tou Koutaliou (Greek fruit preserves).    Above picture served with Caramelized Apricots.

Yiaourtoglyko with tinned tutti frutti

Preparation time:  10 minutes

Serves: 6


  • 500 ml of Greek full fat strained yoghurt
  • 750 ml of heavy cream
  • 1 cup of sugar (adjust according to your taste)
  • 1 can (500 gr.) of drained tutti frutti (assortment of fruit in syrup or any other fruit you like
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence


  1. Whip the cream  until soft peaks are formed.  Add vanilla and mix.  Add sugar or honey and mix.
  2. Combine yoghurt with whipped cream.
  3. Drain the fruit.  Add the fruit and mix in with a spoon.
  4. Place in the refrigerator to cool before serving.

If you are on a diet, skip the heavy cream and add more yoghurt with 2% fat and combine it with fresh fruit.  You can eat it for breakfast, as a snack or for a light dinner.  My favourite combination is with juicy pears and peaches which are juicy and make it sweet and delicious without the extra calories.
