Best Yogurt Parfait Recipe – How To Make Yogurt Parfait

Caitlin Bensel

Yogurt parfaits are everyone’s unsung heroes healthy breakfast. While some may scoff at the “fruit bowl” when options like breakfast stew or bacon are on the brunch menu, a layered yogurt parfait can be just as delicious as a dessert, and it is better for you!

Are yogurt parfaits good for you?

Compared to breakfast favorites like cinnamon monkey bread and sausage stew, a yogurt parfait is indeed a healthier option! Yogurt contains a good amount of protein and vitamin D, while granola and fruit contain healthy fiber and additional vitamins and minerals.

What’s in a yogurt parfait?

Most parfaits are a type of all-you-can-eat layered dish that includes yogurt, granola, and fruit. Many recipes call for store-bought granola; this one includes a homemade granola crunch recipe. Make a bundle for the week! It will keep for up to 7 days in an airtight food container.

Which fruit is best for a yogurt parfait?

Fresh seasonal fruit always makes the best yogurt parfait. Berries and bananas are popular choices, along with tropical fruits like mango, pineapple, and kiwi. Don’t be afraid of pitted stone fruits in the summer, such as peaches, cherries, plums and nectarines. And there are always citrus fruits and pomegranates in winter. But if you’re craving strawberries and they’re out of season, don’t worry: a little sugar and a squeeze of lemon juice will revive those out-of-season fruits.

Which yogurt is best for parfaits?

While it can be tempting to choose a “healthier” option like fat-free, sugar-free yogurt, these choices often come with big sacrifices in taste and texture. Opt for whole milk or even reduced-fat yogurt, and look for naturally flavored and sweetened brands that will have a purer, richer flavor.
