After watching the episode that she made granola and flavored yogurt I haven't bought a flavored yogurt since. The orange yogurt is wonderful and now I do the same thing with strawberries, peaches or what ever I have. Delicious!
Yield: 12 cups
4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
2 cups sweetened, shredded coconut
2 cups sliced almonds
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup good honey
1 1/2 cups small-diced dried apricots
1 cup small-diced dried figs
1 cup dried cherries
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup roasted, unsalted cashews
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Toss the oats, coconut, and almonds together in large bowl. Whisk together the oil and honey in a small bowl. Pour the liquids over the oat mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until all the oats and nuts are coated. Pour onto a 13x18-inch baking sheet. Bake, stirring occasionally with a spatula, until the mixture turns a nice, even golden brown, around 45 minutes. Remove the granola from the oven and allow to cool, stirring occasionally. Add the apricots, figs, cherries, cranberries, and cashews. Store the cooled granola in an airtight container.
Yield: 3 cups
1 quart plain low-fat yogurt
¼ cup raisins
¼ cup chopped walnuts
1 ½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
¼ cup good honey
Grated zest of one orange
½ to 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
Optional: Orange, orange zest, raisins or walnuts
Line a sieve with cheesecloth or paper towels and suspend it over a bowl. Pour the yogurt into the sieve and allow it to drain, refrigerated, for 3 hours or overnight. Place the thickened yogurt into a medium bowl and add the raisins, walnuts, vanilla, honey and orange zest to taste. Thin with orange juice until it is a desired consistency. Garnish with sections of orange, extra orange zest, raisins or walnuts and serve.
Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we may diet.
