  • Frozen Berries: You can use frozen berries to make this recipe instead of fresh berries, simply allow them to thaw before adding to the parfait glass.
  • Cream Cheese: If you wish to add a little cream cheese or mascarpone cheese to the yogurt feel free to combine. I like to add 1/2 a teaspoon of vanilla extract to mix the cheese and yogurt well.
  • Serving: If you don’t have parfait glasses or glassware, simply make this delicious berry yogurt parfait in a bowl.

Storage Instructions

  • Containers: We recommend storing the parfait in an airtight container in the fridge. This will prevent the yogurt and berries from separating. If keeping in the glass be sure to cover with plastic wrap.
  • Fridge: This parfait will last in the fridge for 3-4 days. The yogurt and berries will start to separate after a few days, but it will still taste delicious!

What To Serve With This Recipe?

When serving a yogurt parfait, you’ll want complementary items that enhance its flavors and textures. Here are some options:

  • Honey or Maple Syrup: For added sweetness, drizzle a little honey or maple syrup over the yogurt parfait. This enhances the flavor and provides a touch of natural sweetness.
  • Coconut Flakes: Toasted coconut flakes can add a tropical flair and extra texture to your parfait. They offer a subtle sweetness and a hint of nuttiness.

FAQ’S

What Is a Parfait Dessert?

A parfait is a French dessert that typically consists of layers of fruit, cream, and cake or cookies. In this yogurt berry parfait recipe, we are using yogurt in place of the cream layer. This makes the parfait lighter and healthier, while still maintaining all of the delicious flavors.

What Is The Best Yogurt To Use?

For this recipe, we recommend using plain Greek yogurt. Greek Yogurt is thicker and creamier than regular yogurt, and it also has more protein. This makes it the perfect base for a parfait. You can use any type of yogurt you like, but we think that Greek yogurt gives the best results.

Best Berries To Use In Summer

This yogurt berry parfait is perfect for summer because it features fresh berries! We love using a mix of strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries. However, you can use any type of berries you like. Blackberries, cherries, and even mango would be delicious in this parfait.
