What Are Parfaits?

A parfait is a breakfast or dessert with alternating layers of yogurt and/or whipped cream and fruit. They're typically served in a clear glass container to showcase the layers. They can be made sweet enough to be considered a dessert, or less sweet and enjoyed as a healthy breakfast. A breakfast parfait usually includes a crunchy element like granola or nuts.

Parfait Variations to Try

This quick and simple parfait features sliced strawberries tossed with a small amount of sugar to draw out the juice from the berries. The creamy layer is non-fat Greek yogurt that offers a tangy flavor and a texture thick enough to keep the layers separate. Finally, it's topped with granola for a little added sweetness and crunch. Want to make it your own? Try chopped peaches or nectarines in place of the strawberries. Blueberries, blackberries and raspberries work well too, but if you want them to be juicy, you may have to mash a few berries with the sugar in order to draw out the liquid. We like how the sugar adds sweetness to the berries, but you can skip this step and opt for a sweeter-flavored yogurt in its place.

Can I Make Strawberry & Yogurt Parfait Ahead?

Yes, but it won't hold forever. You can assemble the parfait in a pint-sized mason jar up to 2 hours ahead.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
