Are you having a picnic, grill fest or potluck for July 4th? If your answer is yes or no this yogurt berry parfait will tempt your sweet buds no matter what. It will also help keep your healthy eating in check. This yogurt parfait is a sweetly satisfying alternative to heavier desserts. With raspberry and blueberry sauces it is sort of like a ice cream sundae, but the yogurt version.
With the abundance of all kinds of sweet and juicy fruits in the markets I had to highlight their star status in these creamy parfaits. We should all give credit where it is due, right? Berries are my favorite fruit. I love their sweet tart flavor and the fact that they are all ready in bite sized pieces.
Summer has been excellent so far. We have been enjoying time as a family. I have been loving more time for recipe development & creativity as I am not on the road to the kids school 3 hours a day! I just got back from Boulder, CO from a two day photography workshop called Food and Light. Our teachers, White on Rice Couple, Tartelette and Use Real Butter were unbelievable. I will share a post on that next week. Here is a link for a sneak peek at our Flickr gallery from the event. For now let’s create some sweet stuff, shall we?
People love to interact with their food, especially dessert. You can serve these parfaits pre-assembled or your kids and/or guests can make their own. They can take as much or as little as they want. Think ice cream dessert bar….just a few less calories. You can go with small “shooter” sized portions, or bigger ones like these.
