Cherry Swirl Pudding

Bowl of cherries


  • 2 cups fat-free plain yogurt

  • 2 cups sweet black cherries, pitted

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 1/4 cup dried, unsweetened coconut


Increase the yogurt's density by putting it in a strainer lined with cheesecloth or a coffee filter over a bowl. Refrigerate. After two hours, you'll see about 1/2 cup liquid to discard. Halve the cherries. Mix the cherries, vanilla extract, and coconut into the yogurt. Refrigerate until ready to serve in stemmed cocktail glasses (just spoon it in).
