Yogurt with Cherry Compote and Pistachios

Thursday, June 11, 2015

Sometimes the simplest things taste the best—like a bowl of yogurt, topped with our favorite fruits, and nuts or seeds to add some crunch.  Vu and I have been obsessed with Noosa yogurt since our friend introduced us to this brand, mainly because it’s the closest in taste to the Vietnamese yogurt that we grew up with.   

We usually stock up on the plain one since it complements seasonal fresh fruits or fruit compote very well.  Honestly, you don’t need a recipe to tell you how to spoon yogurt over fruits, add some honey or agave, and throw in some nuts or granola.  Below is a variation that we have enjoyed while cherry is in season.

Yogurt with cherry compote and pistachios
1/2 cup plain yogurt (we love Noosa)
¼ cup of balsamic cherry compote (recipe here)
1 tbsp roasted, unsalted pistachios, crushed
2 tsps of honey (optional)

In a small bowl, add the plain yogurt, top with cherry compote, and sprinkle the pistachios on top. Enjoy!


  1. You are so right. . .the simplest things always seems to taste the best and this yogurt topped with cherries and pistachios is my ideal breakfast or snack. Lucky for me. . .cherry season is in full swing.

    1. hi Lynn! I usually use a cherry or strawberry compote for the spring, peaches in the summer, and figs in the fall.
