We really enjoy yogurt parfaits and when I saw this recipe for Greek yogurt with condensed milk I knew it would be a winner. I knew the sweet, thick, syrupy condensed milk would make for a delicious add-in to greek yogurt and I was really excited to give it a try.
This sunny breakfast parfait is really reminiscent of an orange creamsicle and is so silky, luxurious, and creamy that it can easily double as dessert. You will really feel like you're indulging in something sinful and delicious and you will be so sorry when you reach the end of the glass.
Orange juice and orange zest are mixed with sweetened condensed milk and then stirred into Greek yogurt to make a very thin mixture. Once that mixture sets up for a few hours in the fridge it gains thickness and takes on the texture of a light pudding. With some pretty orange wheels for garnish and a little sprinkling of orange zest on top it is pure heaven. We absolutely loved this and I can't wait to make it again.
Greek Yogurt with Condensed Milk and Oranges
Adapted from Apples to Jam by Tessa Kiros
Tessa says: "The basis of this recipe was given to me - thank you, Ioanna. I added the oranges, but you might like to add another fruit. I sometimes use blood oranges, sometimes ordinary. Whatever sort you use, make sure they are sweet as sweet. You could actually serve this with any other fruit you like, keeping the orange juice and rind for mixing into the yogurt, and then spooning this over any other cut fruit - bananas, mangoes, plums would be beautiful..."
2 whole oranges or blood oranges
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
finely grated rind and juice of 1 small orange
1-1/4 cups Greek yogurt
Use a small sharp knife to cut away the skin of the oranges, leaving no pith. Slice the oranges into substantial wheels, maybe 1/4 inch thick, and then halve those. Put the cut slices in a bowl to collect their juice. If you don't think they're very sweet, sprinkle a tablespoon or so of sugar over them.
Put the condensed milk, half of the orange rind, and 5 tablespoons of the orange juice in a pouring cup (you can drink the rest of the orange juice). Slowly mix this into the yogurt, bit by bit. Cover and put in the fridge for a couple of hours until it has set to a very soft and creamy pudding. Serve a few orange slices with a dollop of the yogurt, some juice dribbled over the top, and a tiny hill of leftover rid, just for extra color.
