Cara Cara with Yogurt and Grand Marnier

February 27, 2017

Author Notes: Simple desserts shine when the fruit is in season. Since we are heading towards the tail end of winter, citrus is still abundant and all the more delicious because of it. The original recipe came from Nigel Slater and his wonderful book, 30 MINUTE PUDDINGS. I made adjustments, but he is my inspiration.Janet Rörschåch

Serves: 1


  • 1 piece citrus fruit, such as an orange, Cara Cara, Morro
  • 6 ounces of favorite yogurt (I am a fan of Icelandic)
  • 1 tablespoon Grand Marnier or other orange flavored liqueur.
  • 1 tablespoon favorite chopped nuts (I used pistachios)
