  • 4 cups of full-fat greek yogurt I use Siggi’s brand or labneh*
  • 4 tablespoons of honey taste and add more to your liking
  • 1-2 pinches of saffron
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 handful of raw unsalted pistachios or almonds roughly chopped
  • Rose petals to garnish optional
  • * Yogurt should be very thick. Typically Siggi’s brand is extremely thick. However if you are using another brand of Greek Yogurt, you may wish to strain it further using a cheesecloth for a few hours.


  • Stir the yogurt so that it is smooth.
  • Add in honey, saffron, cardamom, nutmeg, and mix well until fully combined.
  • In the end, garnish with pistachios and one more pinch of saffron.
  • Serve cold!
