Little Cherry Chocolate Treats

It’s hard to go past cherries and chocolate for a dessert made in heaven. While fresh cherries are lovely, I must admit I prefer frozen cherries for desserts like this because they don’t need any pitting AND they’re available year round. Of course if you don’t have any cherries most berries will work equally well.

enough for: 2
takes: 10 minutes

1/2 cup Greek yoghurt
60g (2oz) dark chocolate
2 handfuls cherries

1. Divide yoghurt between 2 glasses. Finely chop or shave chocolate and stir half into the yoghurt, saving the rest for topping.

2. Pit and chop cherries and layer on top of the yoghurt chocolate mixture. Finish with the reserved chocolate.

Variations

creamier – replace some or all of the yoghurt with whipped cream.

different fruit – berries especially strawberries and or raspberries are wonderful.

dairy-free – use coconut yoghurt or whipped coconut cream.

sweeter – add a pinch of stevia or sugar to the yoghurt. A little vanilla would be lovely too.

crunchier – add chopped roast nuts.

Waste Avoidance Strategy

yoghurt – usually has a shelf life of a month or so. Otherwise, have it for another meal like breakfast! Don’t freeze.

dark chocolate – keep it in the pantry.

cherries – best to use for another meal or snack.
