[Greek Gods] Honey and Strawberry Baklava with Pistachios

Q. What happens when Greek Gods meet the Kitchen Goddess (in training!) blog?

A. A modern twist on a Greek classic with honey and strawberry yogurt, filo pastry and pistachios.
Those of you who know the Foodies100 website may well be aware of the competition currently being run by GreekGods.

The idea was to make a love-inspired dessert fit for Aphrodite using some of the company’s own Greek Style yogurt.

I chose honey and strawberry flavour (after all, what’s more romantic than a red heart shaped fruit?) and decided to update the Greek classic Baklava and bring it into the 21st Century!

Each piece of filo pastry stacked on top of the next shows the layers of your love for the partner – each piece representing another thing you love about them. And what better way to say your love makes me “nuts” then with a good helping of pistachios!
This recipe is also super simple. It’s the perfect recipe for any Greek God (or Goddess) wanting to cook their partner a romantic dinner without spending all of their time in the kitchen. After all, the time you save on cooking, you can use for romancing.

Here’s my recipe!

Disclsoure: I was given a gree tub of the Honey and Strawberry Greek Gods yogurt to use in this recipe. The recipe is my own creation and is being enterred into the Greek Gods competition.


  1. Absolutely lush! I bet my little man would love it. Thank you for creating a lovely recipe and visiting my blog too!

  2. the yogurt is a perfect match for the baklava, I love pistachios!

  3. The Arabs also liked to mix flavors and used honey to reduce the sourness of vinegar or of verjuice to create the sweet-sour flavor they liked especially. Honey was, of course, an essential ingredient in candies, pastries, cakes and fritters of all sorts. And the turrón and marzipan they made with honey, sugar, almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts and pistachios have reached us in almost their original form, in what today is the most emblematic of confections for the Christmas celebrations in Spain.Honey Online UK
