Author Notes

This fuss-free dessert has incredibly special flavors and can be done with accessible ingredients. It's a quick and delightful treat with citrus flavors, combined with tangy Greek yogurt, coconut and intense dark chocolate sauce. For a vegan version, simply use non-dairy milk and non-dairy yogurt (coconut versions are an amazing option in this case!). If you're not using orange cubes; green grapes, star fruit or peach slices also work well. Feel free to create and innovate! The "cold" part can be made ahead of time. —Clarice FV
