    Stone the dates – carefully, to keep their shape – and put in a bowl. Lightly crush the cardamom pods in a pestle and mortar. Heat the coffee, sugar, cardamom and cinnamon in a saucepan until nearly boiling. Pour over the dates and leave to cool, then transfer to the fridge to chill. Serve with Greek yogurt.


    Get ahead: make several hours in advance; chill.
