J’s Yogurt & Granola Parfait

by on February 26, 2015
 

She made it up, inspired by ‘Sweet Kiwi‘.

We got home from ‘shopping’ on Saturday and J, Daughter #1 made up a glass, showing off our recently acquired glassware. It turns out (via Google) that these glasses are actually parfait glasses. Who knew 🙂

Anyway, it’s a simple 3 ‘ingredient’ dessert or breakfast and in-between. All you need? Fruit, Yogurt, Granola/bars.

Here are a few suggestions, as per ‘The Art of the Fruit Bowl’

Fruit

You could use a variety of fruit, or stick with one. 

– tropical fruit mix. Think a combination of pineapple, pawpaw, bananas and passionfruit, maybe? How about a sprinkling of toasted coconut to finish?

– What do you think about a summery berry mix? The combination of sun-blushed strawberries and sweet blueberries?

– Could you make poached fruit parfaits? Why ever not? Stonefruit and pawpaw, even dried fruit are game. Me thinks.

Granola

– You could sub toasted oats for the granola bars

– or use muesli

– no one would quibble if you decided to go ‘raw’ with your oats. 

– you could combine toasted seeds and nuts, desiccated coconut

Yogurt

So…my parfait isn’t the traditional looking one with well defined layers. Thanks or no thanks to rather liquid yogurt I had.

For definition, thick – Greek-style yogurts are great.

But still, we enjoyed it.

– I like plain yogurt but you could certainly go for flavoured, to match the fruit combo

– I considered adding a dollop of creme fraiche to this but I behaved myself and went ‘yogo’

– Vegan? How about layering with coconut cream, oatgurt or soygurt?

So here goes the ‘recipe’. By the way, this is a wonderful treat to make with children at school. Like I did yesterday :).

The children helped. They laid out cups, cut the apples up, took red seedless grapes off stalks, crumbled the granola bars and assembled the parfaits.

Did I mention eat them too, and with delight? 🙂

Ingredients
  1. Mix of fruit
  2. Granola bars, broken up

Instructions
  1. Set out your glasses - the aim is to make a couple of layers so be mindful of how much you put of each element in each glass. Start with a teaspoon/ tablespoon.
  2. I began with fruit when I made mine but J says's she starts with yogurt, so...
  3. Put some yogurt at the bottom of the glass
  4. Follow with granola, then fruit
  5. Repeat
  6. Top with a sprinkling of granola pieces
  7. Eat immediately so the granola doesn't get 'soggy\
