Orange Yogurt with Raisins and Walnuts
- 1 quart plain low-fat yogurt
- 1/4 cup raisins

- 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup honey
- Grated zest of 1 orange
- 1/2 cup to 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice

Line a sieve with cheesecloth or paper towels and suspend it over a bowl. Pour the yogurt into the sieve and place in refrigerator to drain for 3 hours or overnight.
Place the refrigerated, thickened yogurt into a medium bowl and add the raisins, walnuts, vanilla, honey and orange zest to taste. Thin with orange juice until it is a desirable consistency. Garnish with sections of orange, extra orange zest, raisins or walnuts and serve.
