Ingredients

  • cups plain yogurt, (I use low-fat Greek-style)
  • ¼ 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
  • ¾ 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. Set aside 2 (approximately 12-ounce), clear glasses or jars. 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.
