READY IN: 4hrs 15mins
Recipe by Chef Kate

This is called delite because it uses fat-free yogurt--so you can indulge without guilt. The prep time includes two hours for draining the yogurt and two hours for freezing.

Beautiful desert! I love anything yoghurty and this was no exception. A hint from my hubby for draining yoghurt without a cheesecloth - just cut some vertical slits in the yoghurt container, sit it in a bowl and leave overnight in the fridge! I used black sambuca rather than ouzo; even thought I hate aniseed, it was great! I used a few more dates, and this made a lot more than four servings for us - thanks for a delicious and guilt-free desert!
