Nutty Orange Yogurt

  • 1 quart plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • ¾ cup chopped walnuts
  • 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
  • Note: orange, orange zest, raisins and walnuts all optional

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.
