 Create magic with just three ingredients. Yiaourti me meli is a Greek yogurt with honey and walnuts recipe. Well, it is such a straightforward combination that you can barely call it a recipe. However, this dessert is considered one of the best and simplest desserts of Greek cuisine. How, couldn't it be? It is a no-bake treat that you can enjoy at any time of the day, be it a delicious breakfast, an afternoon snack, or a refreshing dessert after a hearty meal. Moreover, yogurt with honey and walnuts is a traditional honeymoon food in Greece, as they believe it is an aphrodisiac.

Is Greek yogurt with honey and nuts healthy? Absolutely yes. Greek yogurt is rich in protein considering the fact that a typical 6-ounce serving contains 15 to 20 grams, the amount in 2 to 3 ounces of lean meat. Moreover, as it is protein-rich, it may help you feel fuller for longer. Honey, on the other hand, is a good source of antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties. Finally, walnuts are good for your brain and may improve your mood due to the omega-3 fatty acids they have. Just like with any other dessert, you need to consume it with consideration. 

The most important tip for this simple dessert stays in the quality of the ingredients. Use good quality, authentic Greek strained yogurt, organic honey, and fresh walnuts. If you are after a lighter version, you can use low-fat Greek yogurt.
