When I first posted this recipe on Instagram, I was hopelessly trying to find an emoji that best matched the delicious taste of this iced dessert.

Yogurt, honey and fruit, particularly peaches, remind me of summers in Greece. The best breakfast for me is a bowl of fresh fruit, topped with a dollop of thick Greek yogurt and drizzled with honey. Continue reading
