[recipe] Creamy Grape Dessert

This, my friends, is a tasty one.  I was surprised by how much I loved it, considering the fact that any dessert I make usually involves chocolate and at least a cup of butter.

(Butter.   Mmm.)

But this has the next best thing: cream cheese.  Not too much, so don't be put off if you aren't a cream cheese fan.  Or a plain yogurt fan.  Trust me, it all works together.

Creamy Grape Dessert   
from here
servings: 8

2 lbs seedless grapes (red were half the price of you can guess what I used)
8 oz plain yogurt
4 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract

2 tbsp brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup chopped nuts (I used almonds)

Cut grapes into halves.  In a bowl, mix yogurt, cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla.  Stir in grapes and then spoon into a large serving dish.

Mix together brown sugar and chopped nuts.  Sprinkle on top of grape mixture.  Chill until ready to serve.


  1. Butter, cream cheese, brown sugar. Hmmm - there has to be a way to combine these fabulous items with whole wheat kernels and make something healthy!

  2. Oooooo, I've been wanting to make this one! I think I will now that you've made it sound so delicious!

  3. where are you? i'm needing some more recipes, drawings, cute photos, and Heather!
