Who says autumn food can't be as fresh as summer's? Try the fruits of fall swaddled in fresh spiced yogurt for a special kinda wonderful!
What’s your favorite fall fruit? Apples, pears and pomegranates rank pretty high for me. So do cranberries (dried or cooked) and grapes. Our fridge and counters are often piled high with these sweet gems of autumn.
But sometimes, you don’t want to just eat an apple -- you want to savor it in a new and exciting way. A way that draws on those comfort foods you love with a whole new twist.
Enter Autumn Fruit with Spiced Yogurt Topping
. It’s raw autumn fruits (you can choose which ones!), chopped up and topped with a spiced vanilla yogurt.
The yogurt topping is kicked up with a blend of spices also sometimes found in apple pie … can you say heaven? Cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon combine to make the yogurt into this spectacular creamy topping. It’s perfect on tart Granny Smith apples but also delicious with sweet tender pears or a mix of whatever autumn fruits you want.
And hey, it’s just fruit and spiced yogurt – that could be breakfast, lunch or dessert -- or even a wonderful, fresh Thanksgiving side dish. Nothing like a super versatile sweet dish, right?
