Yogurt Apricot cups

Written by Veronica Lavenia

The beauty of this recipe is its simple elegance and delicate taste. In summer, yogurt cups with fruit are a fresh idea for a tasty but light snack, ideal as a dessert, too.  Ripe fruit makes all the difference and has a much sweeter taste.

Yogurt Apricot cups: Ingredients

Serves 2

5 ripe apricots 

2 tbsp dates syrup

3 Savoiardi cookies

125 g (4½ oz) plain organic yogurt

Chocolate chips or chopped nuts, to garnish

Yogurt Apricot cups: Method

  1. Wash the apricots, cut into cubes and mix with 1 tablespoon of dates syrup.
  2. In two glasses, arrange a first layer of apricot cubes at the bottom.
  3. Mix the yogurt with 1 tablespoon of date syrup. Beat the yogurt with a whisk until the mixture is creamy and pour a layer over the apricots.
  4. Crumble the Savoiardi cookies over the yogurt and continue by pouring over another layer of yogurt.
  5. Add a final layer of apricots and if desired, decorate with chocolate chips or chopped nuts.
