TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + cooling YIELD:6 servings


  • 6 sheets phyllo dough (14 inches x 9 inches)
  • Butter-flavored cooking spray
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons sugar, divided
  • 1/3 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 1 teaspoon orange juice
  • 1/2 cup halved fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • Fresh mint leaves, optional


  • 1. Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a work surface; spritz with butter-flavored spray. Top with a another sheet of phyllo; spritz with spray. Cut into six squares. (Keep remaining phyllo covered with plastic wrap to avoid drying out.) Repeat with remaining phyllo.
  • 2. Stack three squares of layered phyllo in each of six muffin cups coated with cooking spray, rotating squares so corners do not overlap. Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon sugar into each cup. Spritz with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 6-8 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
  • 3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the yogurt, orange peel and juice, and remaining sugar. Spoon yogurt mixture into cups; top with berries. Garnish with mint if desired. Yield: 6 servings.

"I have a question about the quantities. 1/3 of a cup of yogourt divided in 6 portions is only a couple of spoonfuls and 1.5 cups of fruit will give each person 1/4 cup of fruit. This seems like very small servings to me. A cup of fruit isn't solid - it has a lot of air in it.

Has anyone made this? Were they tiny?"
