There is something extra special about this recipe. Maybe it’s the fancy glass that we like to serve it in, but I suspect it is really the creaminess of the Greek-style yogurt. If you can’t find this variety of yogurt at the store, here’s a trick to try at home: Simply line a mesh strainer with a clean dishcloth or paper towels and pour in 2 cups of plain low-fat yogurt. Set the strainer over a bowl, cover with foil and refrigerate overnight. The whey will drain out, leaving pure heaven behind.
2 cups granola
2 cups 2-percent Greek-style plain yogurt
1 cup strawberries, preferably organic
4 teaspoons honey
1. Measure granola and pour it into a bowl (you can use the Crunchy Granola recipe found later in the chapter, or you can use store-bought granola). Measure the yogurt and pour it into a bowl.
2. Wash the strawberries. Cut off the stems, and slice the berries with an egg slicer or with a knife. Put them in a small bowl.
3. Set out 4 fancy (but sturdy) glasses. In each glass, layer 1/4 cup plain yogurt, 1/2 teaspoon honey, 1/4 cup granola and a small handful of berries. Repeat the layers one more time.
