Refreshing Summer Dessert

dessert-1

This is a quick, light and a refreshing dessert that can be made with a very few ingredients.

1, 6 oz (Total 0 %) Fage brand Greek Yogurt,

Honey,

2 tablespoons of unsalted, chopped Almonds,

1/2 teaspoon of Powdered Cardamom (any local grocery store),

Few Saffron threads (available at any local grocery store, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Amazon.com),

A Dessert cup (I used a stemless red wine glass).

Soak about 6-8 saffron threads in a tablespoon of water for about 30 mins.  Add the saffron water, a teaspoon of honey and a pinch of powdered cardamom to the yogurt & mix.

To assemble the dessert, spoon about 1/3 of the flavored yogurt into the wine glass.   Add  some chopped almonds & a couple of swirls of honey, followed by a layer of the flavored yogurt. Repeat  with a layer of chopped almonds & honey & then a final layer of the yogurt.  Top with the remaining almond pieces, a drizzle of honey & 2-3 saffron threads & dust with some of the powdered cardamom.  Cover & refrigerate until ready to serve.
