When served in a decorative glass this recipe makes a fabulous dessert... or can also facilitate taking other nutrients incognito! ;}I personally prefer the mild taste of kefir to yogurt, but any type of thick creamy cultured product can be used. I also like to think of the added health benefits of adding cultured products to my diet.
