Peach Pavlova with Yoghurt and Honey


A delicious Peach Pavlova, which is guilt free, with less calories, as Greek yoghurt is mixed in the whipped cream, making it lighter but even more delicious! The meringues or mpezedes, as we call them in Greek, which were flavoured with citrus essence, are very aromatic and melt in your mouth, making this dessert exceptional.

Going through my files this morning, I saw this recipe I made before leaving from Athens and thought I should share it while there are still fresh, juicy peaches in the market.



If you want to use canned peaches this is fine and it becomes the easiest dessert you can make in less than fifteen minutes and it is very delicious.  All you need to do is whip the heavy cream and combine it with the other ingredients.

See  How to peel stone fruit and make Peach compote same way as Apricot Compote.


Greek yoghurt is so good, so you can eat it for breakfast, as a snack or for a light dinner.

  2. What a glorious peach dessert! I love everything in here, but it’s a sad reminder that peach season is nearly over.

  3. Such a stunning and irresistible dessert..

  4. What a yummy dessert!! Mmm!!!

  5. We are still doing good with peaches. I am really impressed with your light dessert.

  6. This looks like my kind of dessert! It could be quite light, especially with more yogurt, and it does not have gluten for those who care about that. Greek yogurt is so popular in the States now, it’s an easy ingredient to find. Thanks for sharing another wonderful way to enjoy the last of the summer’s peaches!

    Those peaches look fantastic. I love pavlova and have had many variants, but hose ripe and fresh peaches makes this one look irresistible. A recipe to copy and keep I think.
