Berry Parfait Cups
One of my favorite things about summer is the fresh fruit. Especially berries. I love it all– blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries — everything. And our new Berry Parfait Cups make great use of all the fresh berries summer has to offer. It’s a parfait in a cup– oat and honey “cups” filled with yogurt and macerated berries. Delicious!
Let’s talk about it.
We start with the granola: oats, pecans, honey, and our Fresh Churned Cinnamon Brown Sugar Honey Butter. The Cinnamon Honey Butter adds a great punch of cinnamon sweetness to the oats and nuts.
Press that mixture into the wells of a muffin tin. Make a little hole in the middle to form a cup shape. Bake in the oven until crispy.
Yogurt and Fruit
Add a dollop of yogurt ( we used Greek honey vanilla) into the middle, then top with berries.
Before you do, toss your berries into some sugar and add a little fresh mint. The mint adds a great herby flavor to the sweet berries. Use whatever berries you have! We used blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries.
Eat these for breakfast, dessert, or a snack– just don’t fill them until you’re ready to eat. The longer the yogurt sits in the cup, the less crispy the cup will become.
