This healthy dessert is sure to impress.

To unmold, dip the ramekin in hot tap water for 15 seconds, dry, then run a knife along the edge. Invert onto a plate.

Total Time:
Level: Easy
Serves: 4


  • 1 c. whole milk
  • 1 ½ tsp. plain unflavored gelatin
  • 2 tbsp. plus 1 tsp honey
  • ½ tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp. lemon zest, plus 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 c. plain whole-milk Greek yogurt
  • ½ c. chopped strawberries
  • 2 tsp. sliced almonds, toasted


  1. Heat milk in a saucepan over low heat until hot (do not boil). Remove from heat and sprinkle in gelatin; let stand, 5 min. Return to low heat and bring just to a simmer, whisking constantly until gelatin is dissolved, about 2 min.
  2. Remove from heat and whisk in 2 Tbsp honey, the vanilla, and zest. Let cool, 10 min. Place yogurt in a bowl; stir in milk mixture.
  3. Divide among 4 (½-cup) ramekins or bowls. Refrigerate until set, 2 hrs (or up to 1 day).
  4. Toss berries with lemon juice and (if the fruit needs sweetening) 1 tsp honey. Cover; refrigerate until ready to serve.
  5. Top custard with fruit mixture and almonds before serving.
