Finland is the country of liquorice, salmiac and all that black stuff. They love it here, and so do I. Up here in the north you can get almost everything with liquorice but unfortunately no yoghurt. Since I love both I just mixed both after I found liquorice root powder in a supermarket and didn’t really know what to do with it.
As it turned out, greek yoghurt with liquorice is superdelicious (if you love that black stuff as I do ;) ) and it’s really a nice alternative to fruit or berry yoghurts.

Liquorice Yoghurt

Cook time:
Course category: Snack

LiquoriceYoghurt infoIngredients
  • 170g greek yoghurt (e.g. Fage Total Greek Yoghurt 0% Fat)
  • 10g soya flakes (e.g. from Soyappetit)
  • 1/2 tsp liquorice root powder (e.g. from Urtekram)
  • 10g cashew nuts
  • 10 almonds

(The nutritional info is based on those products mentioned in brackets. I got them in the stores in Finland. They might not be available in other countries. So have a look for similar products , if you want to try this recipe.)

Step 1:

Pour the yoghurt in a bowl and mix with the liquorice root powder.

Step 2:

Add the other ingredients. (I sometimes chop the nuts roughly before adding them to the yoghurt.)

Step 3:

Serve and enjoy.

I think the liquorice yoghurt tastes rather sweet (of course that also depends on the yoghurt you use) and you can indulge yourself in it without feeling guilty.

What ‘weird’ food combination have you tried? How did they turn out?
