Desserts are more or less my favorite part of a dinner. I would actually leave out the starter to keep room for the finale – the dessert!

The Kaki (persimmon) is a sweet and slightly tangy fruit available in different sorts, I like the harder ones best, that have a consistency of an apple. It comes from China I think and apparently has great mystical powers to help against headaches, back pains and foot aches (according to some rural parts of China, as read in a Wikipedia article). So actually you are doing your body some good with this dessert! Haha!

See how to make here:

Ingredients for 2
200g mascarpone
150g Greek yoghurt
2 tablespoons milk
1-2 tablespoons sugar
1 Kaki fruit (persimmon)
2 teaspoons pomegranate seeds
Optional: cinnamon to sprinkle on top

In a bowl, combine mascarpone and Greek yoghurt together, mixing in the milk, to make it more creamy and adding sugar last.

Remove the skin of the Kaki fruit, cut the top off and then make 1/2 cm slices. Keep the two nicest looking slices for decoration (with the star-shaped part in the middle) and cut the rest into little cubes.

Now add the cubes to the bottom of the glass, carefully fill up with the mascarpone mixture and top with the slice of Kaki. Last you can add the pomegranate seeds.


If you want to add cinnamon, sprinkle a bit on top of the mascarpone layer. This is especially nice during the Christmas season.
