Healthy Natural Raspberry Yoghurt Parfait
Never in this world would I consider myself a healthy person. Have you ever seen the rest of my blog posts? Ha! Especially the Marshmallow Fluff based Monster Cookies with a bucketload of different candies. Eeps! But I do have a slight obsession with yogurt. I literally love every single one and even have a yogurt maker.
I used frozen raspberries as I wanted to coat in sugar and for raspberries to thaw out after the application of sugar to give that glossy look. But you can use fresh if your heart desires. In fact, you don’t have to use raspberries. This would work with whatever fruit you wish. You could even mix and match fruits.
All the ingredients you need:
- Any natural yogurt (whether shop bought or home made)
- Raspberry conserve
There are no specific measurements in the recipe below as it’s easier to just eyeball it when mixed to ensure you added enough conserve to your desired taste.
Raspberry Yogurt Parfait Recipe
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 0 mins
Yield: as many as you’d like
- Low fat natural yogurt
- Fresh or frozen raspberries
- Raspberry conserve
- Optional: Turn the glass upside down and wet the rim equally and dip into plain or coloured sugar. I didn’t do this step but wished I had after.
- If using a wine glass, place 1 raspberry at the bottom. Or, for flat bottomed glasses, jars, etc. place enough raspberries to cover the bottom. Spoon enough natural yogurt into the bottom to cover the raspberry/raspberries to create a layer.
- Using 2 separate bowls, spoon out an equal amount of natural yoghurt into each. Add some natural conserve to both. I used approx. 5 level dessert spoons of natural yogurt and approx. 2 semi-heaped spoons of raspberry conserve to my taste. In one bowl, mix both the conserve and yogurt together until completely combined. In the other bowl marble the yogurt slightly (it will marble more when spooning anyway).
- Spoon out the mixed yogurt on top of the natural yogurt to make alternating layers of mixed and unmixed ensuring that when you nearly reach the top, the last layer is unmixed natural yogurt.
- For the top layer, spoon the marbled yogurt until approx ½cm from the rim.
- Optional: For fresh raspberries, dampen the raspberry enough for sugar to adhere. For frozen raspberries, they should have thawed enough to be damp enough for sugar to adhere to.
- Place the raspberry into the yogurt in the middle. Or wherever you like. You can use more to edge around the rim if you didn’t apply sugar to the rim. Or go crazy and put more on, It’s your choice. Just don’t go too crazy, they’ll sink if you put too many on!
Enjoy a refreshing healthy treat on a warm summer day.
