Honey Coffee Yogurt Sauce

This was inspired by something I saw on Aussie Masterchef. Combining honey and yogurt is common enough but to add on coffee? It adds on this additional depth of flavor and texture which is really good!


  • Plain Yogurt (Greek or European style works well)
  • Honey
  • Good instant coffee
  • Salt and Black Pepper

Getting it Done!

  1. To a medium sized bowl, add 2 big tablespoons of yogurt, 1.5 tablespoons of honey, sprinkles of instant coffee, a small pinch of salt and black pepper
  2. Whisk well to combine all the ingredients
  3. This is a sweetish sauce which can double up as a dressing as well. As a sauce, it goes with something more salty such as crab cakes. As a dressing, it does well with more bitter greens such as rocket
  4. Done!
