  • 2 teaspoons honey

Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Set a strainer lined with 100%-cotton cheesecloth or a paper coffee filter over a large mug. Spoon yogurt into lined strainer. Cover; refrigerate for at least 8 hours or up to 24 hours. (Yogurt will thicken to form a soft cheese.)
  2. Discard liquid in mug. In a small bowl, gently stir together the thickened yogurt and vanilla; fold in figs or apricots. Spoon into 2 small dessert dishes. Sprinkle with walnuts. Drizzle individual servings with honey. If desired, sprinkle with lemon peel.
  • Tip: To toast nuts, spread in a shallow baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake in a 350°F oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until golden, shaking pan once or twice.
