Raspberry Yogurt Parfait

Raspberry Yogurt Parfait

This Raspberry Yogurt Parfait is perfect for hot summer days like today. It's healthy too with only 2-3 ingredients needed, and ready in under 5 minutes!

Ingredients:

  • Low fat natural yogurt
  • Raspberry conserve
  • Fresh or frozen raspberries, optional
  • Granulated sugar, optional

Directions:

  1. 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.
  2. If using a wine glass, place a few raspberries at the bottom. For flat bottomed glasses, jars, etc. place enough raspberries to cover the bottom. Spoon enough natural yogurt into the bottom to cover the raspberries to create a layer.
  3. In a small bowl, spoon some natural yoghurt and add some natural conserve and stir to combine. Add more conserve if necessary to your taste. I used around 5 level dessert spoons of natural yogurt and 2 semi-heaped spoons of raspberry conserve to my taste.
  4. Spoon out the raspberry yogurt on top of the natural yogurt to make alternating layers of mixed and unmixed yogurts, ensuring that when you nearly reach the top, the last layer is unmixed natural yogurt.
  5. Roll the raspberries in sugar and place one (or more) on top of the parfait. Don't add too many though, they'll sink if you do - optional.

Notes:

  • Feel free to mix it up with different flavour conserves. Or if you don't have any conserves in, gently simmer the fruit with some sugar on the stovetop until the juices start to thicken, and stir in a small amount of cornflour (cornstarch) to make your own fruit fillings. Blueberry and lemon sounds delicious.
  • It's completely option whether you want to use fruit rolled in sugar. If using fresh fruit, damped slightly and then roll in the sugar. Frozen fruit will already be damp from thawing.
