Author Notes

This recipe was adapted from the hazelnut yogurt in Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner...Life by Missy Robbins. Don't use a food processor instead of a blender—the texture won't turn out as smooth. I like non- or low-fat Greek yogurt, to balance all the nuts' richness, but any fat content will work. —Emma Laperruque

What You'll Need
  • 2 cups plain Greek yogurt, low-fat or non-fat (440 grams)
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, deeply toasted and totally cooled (117 grams)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  1. Combine the yogurt and half the nuts in a blender. Process until smooth, scraping as needed. Add the rest of the nuts, maple syrup, and salt. Process again until totally smooth, scraping as needed. Store in the fridge.

Help! My yogurt came out of the blender very liquidy and hasn't thickened after several hours in fridge. I guess I'll whoosh it with some bananas for a big batch of smoothies, but any idea what I did wrong?

What is that fruit combination you topped it with? Recommendations for a summer brunch?

Hi Margaret! We topped it with some figs, blackberries, strawberries, blueberries, and pomegranate seeds, all tossed in a little honey. Any fruit that's ripe and delicious would be great on top of this yogurt. I'd love to try peaches next!

We had this for breakfast this morning and thought it was such a nice change from our usual yogurt with some fruit thrown into the mix. Thanks for that "deeply toasted" tip. It also made us realize we are overdue for a blender upgrade!

I made this with hazelnuts, since I cannot find pecans in the tiny German town I live in. Anyway, it turned out amazing. How long do you think this can be kept in the fridge?

Yay! I'd check the expiration date of your yogurt and use that as a guideline.
