This Honey Frozen Greek Yogurt is the perfect combination of smooth, tangy, sweet and salty. Perfect for dessert.

My love affair with honey didn’t start until I was well into my adult years.

As a kid, I just wanted jelly or jam on toast and maple syrup on waffles and pancakes. Honey was a “health food” sweetener in my head back then (for whatever reason – probably because my health conscious mom preferred it.)

But later in life, a switch was finally turned on with my taste buds, and suddenly I couldn’t get enough.

I started to learn that there were many different honey varietals – beyond clover – and all the flavor nuances honey can have.

This Honey Frozen Greek Yogurt is the perfect combination of smooth, tangy, sweet and salty. Perfect for dessert.

Whenever I visit a farmers’ market – close to home or in my travels– I’m looking for and buying the local honey. Case in point: the past few summers at the beach, I always stop by the Cape May Honey Farm– learning more about their local honey, like New Jersey Blueberry Blossom (heavenly), and beyond, like Oregon Meadowfoam Honey (tastes like a bit like marshmallows, truly.)

And through The Recipe ReDux, we’ve been fortunate enough to have the National Honey Board sponsor both a recipe contest and a webinar that walked us through a honey tasting (now, how cool is that?) 

This past April, I got to spend a few days of R&R with Healthy Aperture founder and my dietitian colleague/collaborator/friend-in-crime, Regan, in the beautiful gulf coast town of Seaside where I bought a tub of this local Southern Craft Creamery Tupelo Honey Ice Cream.

One bite and I thought, “I have to try to make something like this when I get home.”

Granted, this recipe is not nearly as ultra rich as the ice cream was but I think the smooth, slightly tangy yogurt with honey and sea salt make a magical combination.

I used a reduced-fat Greek yogurt, which produced some iciness in the final product the longer I left it in the freezer. (Note: try sampling it about 3 hours after popping it into your freezer vs. 24 hours later.) But even after an overnight in the freezer, I just popped it into the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to soften it up a touch, which made it more scoop-able and a bit less icy.

As for the honey, I used my sample of Tupelo honey that I brought back from that Florida trip and had been saving for a special recipe just like this.
