Citrus Roasted Strawberry Parfaits

Something very happy has happened around here. I have discovered the magical flavors of roasted strawberries. Have you ever done this? You need to drop everything to roast up a batch right now. Right after you read this post. Maybe in order to do this you must dash to the market to get a big batch of strawberries. That’s OK, i’ll be waiting for you when you get back. On your shopping list add a juicy orange, a jar of unrefined coconut oil and some thick Greek yogurt.

Ready. Set. Let’s roast!

There are the berries before the heat. They are simply coated in two tablespoons of fresh squeezed orange juice and a tablespoon of my favorite coconut oil I use all the time.

The dazzling red color of these roasted berries says it all. Like stained glass I tell ya. Ahhhh, the beauty…

The coconut oil and citrus add even more flavor to an all ready perfect treat.

We have lots of fresh strawberries all year round here in California. This dessert/snack will be perfect for spring and summer picnics and parties too.

Strawberries get superbly sweet when heat is applied. They taste kind of like a liquid fruit roll up. Actually if you baked these for waaaayy longer you would end up with fruit leather/roll ups.

For now we will stick with parfaits. I suggest you try these strawberries with your oatmeal too. They make a nice spreadable jam as well. Smear some on your buttered toast.

For my vegan friends use a vegan soy or coconut yogurt. I would never want to leave you out of all this fun!

  3. Wow this looks divine! Those photos make me want to grab a spoon and dive right in. I love roasted strawberries and have been roasting them for a while. They are absolutely fantastic. My favourite roasted strawberry recipe would have to be roasted strawberry ice cream.

    Thanks for including my roasted strawberry cheesecake recipe in your links!

  4. Oh that looks so good! I’ve been seeing a lot of strawberries in the markets in Mexico lately, spring is just around the corner. and I’m definitely making this.

  5. Yes! I love roasted fruit. In fact I just had roasted banana pancakes over the weekend. I love that it brings out a little extra sweetness!

  6. This looks delicious. I can’t wait to taste the flavor of the strawberries after applying your heat technique! This is the perfect recipe for the brink of Spring!

  7. Marla, this is so gorgeous! Who needs whip cream or icecream when u have thick, delicious Greek yogurt. I have never thought of roasting strawberries. This looks sooooo good! Roasted veggies have such a sweet yummy flavor, the strawberries must be divine. Love it!

  8. So loving this, Marla! Roasted fruit – I could so get addicted to this. Also loving the pix! All the way around delicious!!

  9. These parfaits are amazing! We are never without a few pints of strawberries in our house. I have never tried roasted strawberries but I will be very soon! Thank you for the inspiration and a delicious recipe!

  10. I don’t think I’ve tried roasted strawberries…roasted peaches though, yes! i’ll bet these will work with many other fruits too…like figs!

  11. Wow – the look divinely delish! Thanks for the great idea… for super sweet and luscious strawberries I will definitely be giving this a go xo

  12. I love the idea of roasting strawberries – I’ve roasted grapes before but never strawberries. Roasting definitely brings out the sweetness in fruits and vegetables.

  13. I’m on a tight budget…can I use something other than coconut oil, or will it ruin the taste? Thanks! They look delish. 🙂

    1. Hi Emily, you will probably do just fine roasting the strawberries in a neutral flavored oil, like canola. The coconut oil is a better flavor though, remember one jar will last a really long time 🙂

  14. Hi,
    Do these keep well overnight? I’m making a large breakfast for around 30 people but like to do as much prep work the night before as I can, and would love to make this! Been eyeing this recipe for months 🙂 Thanks so much
