Fresh berries at breakfast or brunch is a treat anytime! But layer the same berries with this sweet, creamy, and slightly spirited sauce and you have a dish fit for company. (Make it without the liqueur for children, of course!) Served in individual glasses, or in a large bowl on a brunch buffet, this lovely concoction makes a lovely centerpiece. You can treat it casually as well, assembling it in disposable plastic cups with lids to take on a hike. Sprinkle it with some granola for added crunch, if you like. This is a most versatile recipe! Serves 6
2 cups plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons Kahlua (or other coffee liqueur), or espresso
1 tablespoon Grand Marnier (or other orange liqueur), or orange juice concentrate
4 cups assorted fresh berries (such as blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, and quartered strawberries. Reserve a few pretty berries for garnish.)
Fresh mint sprigs (optional)
Whisk together the yogurt, brown sugar, Kahlua or espresso, and orange liqueur or orange juice concentrate. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow the flavor to marry, or make it the night before.
Place 1/2 of the berries in the serving dish(es) and top with half of the yogurt mixture. Repeat. Garnish with reserved berries and/or mint sprigs.
