Great recipe. So easy to make. The fruit becomes plump and is so refreshing. Followed the recipe exactly even though had doubts about the amount of green tea but it works perfectly.

Taste nice enough, nothing special but certainly not enough to sustain me until lunchtime. I don't think many supermarkets stock dried prunes and the tinned ones don't absorb much liquid so ended up rather watery until I boiled it down a bit.

I honestly didn't know what to expect here but it was great! The fruits were lovely and sweet and the green tea gave it an amazing slight bitterness. My local shop didn't have dried prunes, only tinned ones, so used those. I don't think it made much of a difference to the taste but probably should have added less green tea as it was quite liquid.

Genuinely didn't think I'd like this as not a fan of dried fruits but it was exceptionally tasty. Didn't use green tea as neither of us like it and thus don't have it in the house (and wasn't about to buy a whole box for 1 recipe) but otherwise followed instructions to the letter (jut used water instead of green tea). Be careful when simmering fruit that it doesn't boil dry. Ours did!

This was delicious although I made some changes based on ingredients on hand. I poached apricots and golden raisins and let them sit overnight. I didn't have plain yogurt and used the organic brands in the fridge, a Florida gift orange and some toasted almonds left over from your Stollen Buns (yumo!). The poached fruit made the parfait and the whole concoction was scrumptious. I used beautiful highball glasses which added to the enjoyment.

I wasn't sure whether to just add the fruit or the fruit and tea after simmering to the tumblers? I added both, but that seemed like a lot of fluid, the yogurt mixed with the tea to some extent.

Thanks for your question. Yes the tea is included too. If you spoon the mixture in, you can divide it evenly between the four glasses. Feel free to leave some of the liquid out if you prefer.

Really enjoyed the recipe. I slightly blended the fruit with the tea after cooking, so I wouldnt lose any of the vitamines or taste to the water, it had a nice consistency like that. Obviously you shouldn't blend it too much, just enough to get the water blended in, but that there are still some pieces of fruit left.
