This simple and refreshing Nectarine Dessert is a great end to any summer meal. A particularly good follow up to any number of Mediterranean Recipes.

Note that you’ll need to strain the yogurt a day ahead. I think Greek brandy, like Metaxa, would be nice here in place of the Grand Marnier, but I haven’t tried it. If you do, I’d love to hear how it is.

You can buy Greek-style vanilla yogurt and skip the straining step. A sprinkle of minced fresh mint would be nice here.


  • 2 cups vanilla yogurt we like Brown Cow whole milk vanilla
  • 4 nectarines pitted and cut in 1-inch chunks
  • 4 tablespoons Grand Marnier or other orange flavored liqueur


  • Line a colander with two layers of cheese cloth and set it over a bowl large enough to capture any liquid that drains. Pour in yogurt. Cover tightly and refrigerate for at least 24 hours.
  • Divide nectarine chunks between 4 dessert bowls or ramekins; drizzle 1 tablespoon of Grand Marnier over fruit in each bowl.
  • Top each bowl with a generous dollop of strained vanilla yogurt and serve.
