    Perfectionist cook's Note:

    I saw this dessert on a Greek cooking show many years ago and I wrote the recipe down. However I only made it today and it is fabulous: creamy, light and just perfect for summer. I highly recommend making it straight away - don't wait like I did! Note that this dessert does require Greek-style yoghurt, ideally strained and with 10% fat. Also cooking time is actually refrigeration time.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 500 g Greek yogurt (strained and full-fat)
    • 2 (500 g) pineapple rings (in natural juice not syrup)
    • 2 (200 g) ladyfingers
    • 500 ml non-dairy whipping cream (cool whip or vegetal cream)
    • 4 tablespoons icing sugar (heaped)
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
    • 10 -15 glace cherries (to decorate)


    1. 1
      Drain pineapple and reserve juice.
    2. 2
      Whip cream with icing sugar and vanilla essence until firm peaks form.
    3. 3
      Fold yoghurt into cream - it should be a stiff, thick cream.
    4. 4
      Place ladyfinger biscuits on the bottom of a 20cm x 30cm baking dish or rectangular tupperware container.
    5. 5
      Pour 1 tablespoon of pineapple juice from can over each ladyfinger biscuit soaking them well.
    6. 6
      Cover biscuits with half of the cream and cover with pineapple rings. ( I prefer to chop the rings and then scatter them over the cream layer, as it makes it easier to slice).
    7. 7
      Add another biscuit layer over the pineapple and soak with the remaining pineapple juice.
    8. 8
      Cover with the remaining cream and smooth the layer well.
    9. 9
      Arrange pineapple rings over the top and insert the glace cherries into the holes of the rings.
    10. 10
      Allow to soften and absorb flavours in fridge for at least 4 hours,preferably overnight.
    11. 11
      Edited to add: I recently made this with one tin sliced pineapple and one tin peach halves. I mixed the juices from the tins and decorated the layers and the top with both types of fruit. Personally I liked this version even better than the original one I posted and encourage anyone interested to try different combinations of fruit.
