Yogurt Parfaits With Walnuts, Dates & Honey

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by LainieBug

from Cooking Light magazine. Draining the yogurt creates a thick consistency. Lightly coat your knife or kitchen shears with cooking spray to prevent the dates from sticking as you chop them. "Cooking Time" is actually chilling time.

Wonderful treat! Made it with homemade vanilla sheep yoghurt which is VERY creamy (just sheep yoghurt with a little honey and a split vanilla bean left in the fridge overnight). I will definitely make this again and again. Thanks for posting!
Made for PARTY game December 2011.
