Yogurt Parfait: A Quick-As-A-Wink Dessert

Print  Friendly and PDF
What do you whip up when you want something sweet and healthy but do not have the time or patience to slave over creating it?Yoghurt Parfait,right? A few weeks ago, this is what I did when I had invited friends over and was under a severe time crunch.You'll see what I meant when you look at the picture. It was a messy presentation but the taste was anything but!Parfait has french roots and is usually made of custard and fruit puree. A healthy alternative to this is using low-fat plain or Vanilla yogurt which is what I did.

  • 1 32-oz Container of low-fat Vanilla/Banilla/Plain Yogurt
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup Fresh seedless grapes, halved
  • Sprigs of Mint, for garnish
  • Crumbled granola (optional)
  • 8 wine Glasses
  • Mix all the fruits in a big bowl.
  • Spoon a layer of the mixed fruits, layer with yogurt and repeat it one more time.
  • Top it with crumbled granola and mint.
The beauty of this dessert is that any fruit combo can be used. Rice pudding can be used instead of Yogurt as well.

  1. Hey N,

    The yogurt parfait is just too good. I don't think it's any bit messy at all.

    But you know, for the uninitiated like me, we need precise instructions on the "how to" stuff... lol

    In the 2nd bullet under "Procedure", you may want to add, after.. Spoon a layer of the mixed fruits.. "in a wine glass", then continue with the rest of your text.

    Feel free to take this comment out later.

  2. Hey N,
    Big congratulations on this. So thrilled to see all the stuff you've been talking about :-)

    Oh one more.. just what I observed..
    My eyes are strained a little bit after going through the posts. I guess it's due to the contrast of white text on black. May be it's just me.. or does this style bother your eyes too, after a while?
    Take this comment out too later. You don't want the very first comment to be a criticism :-D

  3. Uma,
    Don't worry. I'll take any criticism as a constructive one.The reason why I chose Black & White is cause its elegant. I will change the font of the text to a slightly bigger one..hope that'll help. We don't visitors leaving with a we?
