Honey Yogurt Semifreddo
Semifreddo. Say it with me. It just rolls off the tongue, like honey, doesn’t it? Let’s say it again, together. Semifreddo. Italian is such a beautiful language. Who else could make the words for “half cold” sound so romantic? Well, perhaps the French. I guess…

Italian is such a beautiful language. Who else could make the words for “half cold” sound so romantic?
Well, perhaps the French. I guess there is a reason why they are called romance languages.
I have been enamored with this Italian dessert for years and recently shared a recipe for a lighter version the other day on My Way Home by Wayfair. I can’t say enough good things about this semifreddo, made less guilty from Greek yogurt folded into a sweet whipped cream. Simpler than ice cream, and a little healthier, too, it is the perfect sweet treat for the warm weather ahead.
Come join me on Wayfair for a silky bite of Honey Yogurt Semifreddo.
Gorgeous photos! This looks delightful!
Thank you so much, Lauren!

Oh my Liren, your semifreddo looks SO divine! That honey oozing over the top looks so delicious. I want a spoon to eat it all up!
Now i’m in love with semifreddo! I agree, anything said in Italian sounds romantic :) Gorgeous photos with the pools of honey!
Another beautiful creation from you. These images are so beautiful, Liren, and I can only imagine that taste matches looks perfectly. I love pistachios!
Your semifreddo is just gorgeous! Will stop over to see the recipe :)
Liren – your photos are amazing! I have never made semifreddo and you have inspired me to take a stab at it. The combination of honey, pistachios and yogurt is a perfect blend of flavors. Pinning!!!
I LOOOVE Semifreddo. But I’ve never had it with pistachio nuts. What a nice twist. I know I will love this. You take beautiful pictures Liren. Perfect for nice warm days like this weekend. :-)
I’m a sucker for anything topped with pistachios. This looks like the most decadent dessert and I’m sure it’s wonderfully rich, but how nice that you used yogurt!
Pure gorgeousness…love the recipe and stunning photography! You are so talented, Liren! Well done as always!
Wow, gorgeous dessert! Must taste just perfect!
Wow!! This looks incredibly delicious!!! Gorgeus photos, I love those plates!
Thanks, Ambika! I love those plates, too :) (Anthropologie!)
Oh boy does this look good…I want some!
Semifreddo is one Italian dessert I haven’t tried, but now you’ve convinced me. I love that you lightened this up with Greek yogurt, one of the most versatile ingredients around.
Just gorgeous as usual, I can’t wait to try this beautiful dessert. Pistachios are one of my favorite nuts too. Thanks for introducing me to the Semifreddo of Liren! xoxo :)
This looks amazing! Everytime I see the word semifreddo I can’t help by say it in my head like Giadda :)
Lovely. I love honey in just about anything. Well maybe not in chicken noodle soup, that might be odd. At any rate, I made a really delicious and simple frozen honey cream last year on my blog. http://madebymike.wordpress.com/2011/03/11/frozen-honey-cream-everyday-food-challenge/.
I agree! Love honey, and my newest obsession is creamy raw honey. I’m running over to check out your frozen honey cream – sounds dreamy!
YES. “Love”. I love semifreddo and you first introduced it to me almost ten years ago when we were brainstorming Thanksgiving desserts (2003). You had sent over a Nigella Lawson recipe back then, also honey semifreddo, and it was a great end to our heavy meal. (The next day, Tati was born!) As always: amazing photographs above!
I do remember this, clear as a bell! Nigella drew me into semifreddo, she can be so persuasive!
