Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups plain yogurt, (I use low-fat Greek-style)
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons kiwi pulp from about 2 larger, brown-skinned kiwi
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • about 2 dozen baby kiwi, cut in half, horizontally
  • 3/4 cup granola (your favorite one)

Instructions

  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine the yogurt with the kiwi pulp, honey, and vanilla. (To make the kiwi pulp -- peel each kiwi and then on a clean cutting surface, finely chop them until you have super tiny pieces. Press them with the bottom of a fork to "purée" them further and to extract more juice.)
  2. Use about 12 baby kiwi halves to make the bottom layer in each glass or jar. (See bottom notes!)
  3. Then add 2 tablespoons of the granola on top of the baby kiwi, in each one.

  4. Follow the granola with about 2 tablespoons of the yogurt mixture, in each one.
  5. Repeat this twice more, and then finish the baby kiwi.

Recipe Notes

This recipe is for pretty generous portions -- you could certainly make smaller portions by using smaller glasses or jars, and dividing the ingredients accordingly.

Use any granola you'd like to -- one with honey is lovely with the kiwi.

*This is important! Part of my job is making food look beautiful. I took the time to place each baby kiwi half with its interior facing out, lined up as perfectly as possible. ONLY DO THIS IF YOU FEEL LIKE IT! I happen to love spending my time doing this sort of thing (especially for guests), but I realize I'm not the norm. You can make your layers any which way you want to -- you can even just throw it all together in a bowl. It will still be delicious! Promise!
