Fruit & Yogurt Parfait

Yogurt parfait can be perfect for an evening snack or as a dessert. Its simple to make, and its a very healthy and refreshing recipe to cheer you up.

Serves 2

Prep Time : 10 minutes
Cook Time : 5 minutes

Ingredients : 

  • 1 apple 
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup strawberries or any seasonal berries of your choice
  • 1 orange
  • 2 cups yogurt. You can use greek yogurt instead
  • 1/2 cup granola cereals or corn flakes
  • 1/2 tea spoon cinnamon powder 
  • 1/2 cup dried raisins/cranberries
  • 1/2 cup almond flakes, or some nuts
  • 1 tablespoon sugar or honey

Steps followed :

Chop the apple into small pieces. (You can use ripe apricots, instead of apples as well). Sprinkle sugar on top of it on a pan and sauté it little bit, until the sugar melts and forms a uniform coating around the apples. Keep it aside. Sprinkle cinnamon powder and toss it a bit. You can skip this step and use the chopped apples directly.

Chop the banana into small pieces. Also chop the strawberries or any other seasonal berries into halves and keep aside. Clean and cut the oranges into small pieces.

Add honey and whip the yogurt thoroughly.You can skip this step, if you are using flavored yogurt. I prefer plain yogurt, as it brings out the taste of the fruits.

Use a wide enough glass. Add a layer of whipped yogurt at the bottom. Add the sautéed apple and banana. Again layer it up with yogurt. Then goes a layer of nuts/almond flakes. Finally another layer of yogurt. Top it with cereals, dried cranberries or raisins and almond flakes. Garnish with orange pieces and honey. Serve it chilled.
