Parfaits

Have you had a berry parfait before?

Traditionally, a parfait (pronounced par-fay) is a dessert of alternating layers of fruit and cream. Kind of like a trifle, without the cake. In America, parfaits have been modified to a breakfast treat by using yogurt instead of cream or mousse.

I love parfaits! They’re easy, healthy, and if you do them right, taste delicious! It’s fun to be creative with them, especially during the summer when a lot of fresh fruits are in season.

Cinnamon Oats

A classic yogurt and berry parfait would use granola as a way to break up the layers and add a crunch. We’ve simplified things a little bit by toasting oats in Chef Shamy Cinnamon Honey Butter. It still gives a great crunch, and adds a great sweet cinnamon flavor.

If you really want to use granola, try this recipe!

Toasting oats is pretty simple. Feel free to leave them in the oven a few extra minutes if you really want them to have an extra crunch! Just remember that they’ll crisp up a little more when they’re cooling.

Notes

Here are a couple suggestions:

  1. Many good things can be said about using Greek yogurt– it’s better for you. But beware of the flavor. Plain Greek yogurt is very plain. I prefer vanilla or honey.
  2. If you’re not a yogurt person, use a little whipped cream or even ice cream if you’re feeling adventurous.
  3. The choice of berries is up to you. Use whatever’s in season!
  4. It’s fun to see the different layers! Use a tall glass or mason jar so your parfait is as visually pleasing as it is delicious!

Enjoy!
