"This is so good, takes a little more time to prepare than some of the other recipies, but well worth it. I had trouble finding the coffee-flavored yogurt, so will try some a different flavor the next time."

"Delicious light fluffy dessert. I used vanilla yogurt. Anyone who likes cappuccino would love this."

"This was so good that my 27 year old son even licked his dish!

I wasn't able to find coffee yogurt but I did find cappuccino yogurt and used that. I would definitely make it again!"

"If you like coffee flavored desserts, this a a nice recipe to add to your collection. I doubled the recipe and didn't use fat-free anything (personal preference). I followed the recipe otherwise. My husband and I loved it, and our picky 18 month-old didn't even spit it out! Will be making this again."

"I thought it was great. I couldn't find coffee yogurt, so I put a little extra coffee crystals in and made it that way. I used vanilla yogurt and I didn't care for the tartness of that. But overall I thought it was very refreshing. My husband didn't care for it but I think if I tweek the recipe just a little more, he'll be fine."
