This is a wonderfully light and tasty dessert that hits the mark on hot summer days. I've made it festive themed for an Aussie Christmas, but you could use any combination of fruit you like, or even add nuts, seeds or dark chocolate chips to create your own unique flavour combos.

I love that this version uses only 5 ingredients, making it super easy and quick to throw together. Just be sure to make it ahead of time as it will take a few hours to freeze. I like to make it the day before I want to serve. Take it out a few minutes before serving to make it easy to turn out from the tin and soften slightly.

The sweetness comes only from natural unrefined sources i.e. the honey and the fruit. You'll also get a much creamier mouthfeel if you use a full fat or even an extra creamy Greek yoghurt. I have tested with a fat-free variety and the result is a little icy.

INGREDIENTS

120g fresh cherries, plus a few extra to decorate
60g plump dried figs
2 tbs Cobram Estate Robust extra virgin olive oil
300g full fat Greek yoghurt (unsweetened)
1/4 cup pure honey

METHOD

Step 1

Pit cherries and cut into quarters. Chop the dried figs.

Step 2

Mix together all ingredients in a bowl. Drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil over the bottom of a small non-stick loaf to tin - this will help the loaf to turn out easily - and pour in the mixture. Freeze for several hours or preferably overnight.

Step 3

Turn out onto your serving plate and decorate with extra cherries and for Christmas add a decoration from your tree or perhaps some holly. You could also decorated with fresh berries and perhaps a grating of dark chocolate.
