Madzoon (Yogurt) with Honey, Fruit and Nuts

Autumn is fast-approaching, but we’re still feeling the intense warmth of summer. We find the best way to stay refreshed is with a soothing dessert made with plain madzoon (yogurt).

Here’s one of our go-to treats made with homemade yogurt (or a good quality store-bought version), topped with fresh fruit of your choice, honey and nuts. Simple and sweet.
