What You’ll Need

Ingredients for a Strawberry Parfait: strawberries, yogurt, honey, and granola.

Ingredient Notes

  • Strawberries- Fresh, ripe strawberries offer the best flavor. Look for ones with a deep red color that are firm, but not hard, and without bruises or soft spots.
  • Granola- You can use any brand you like, or even homemade.
  • Yogurt- Plain, full-fat yogurt is best for its richness and tangy flavor.

Add-ins and Substitutions

  • Substitute other fruit- Try this recipe with other fruit, such as blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, peaches, pineapple, kiwi, or cantaloupe.
  • Use maple syrup- You can use maple syrup in place of the honey if you like. It will have more of a maple-y flavor, but will sweeten just as well.
  • Substitute flavored yogurt- Instead of plain yogurt, you can use any number of flavored ones, including vanilla. Just adjust your honey to avoid over-sweetening. You can also sub dairy-free yogurt or lower-fat yogurt.
  • Add whipped cream- Make this into more of a dessert by adding whipped cream or substituting it in place of the yogurt. Use store-bought or this homemade Chantilly Cream.

How to Make Strawberry Parfait

  • Chop the fruit. Chop the fresh strawberries up into small pieces.
  • Combine yogurt and honey. Then thoroughly mix the plain Greek yogurt with the honey.

Pro Tip:  Always taste test. Give the yogurt and honey mixture a taste to see if it needs more honey or is sweet enough. Everyone’s tastes vary.

Steps to make Strawberry Parfait: chop the strawberries, then mix the yogurt and honey with a whisk.
  • Assemble the parfait. Now begin layering the parfait in a small glass cup or mason jar using 1/4 cup of each ingredient at a time, repeating until the jar is full. You can layer it in any order, but I layered mine this way: yogurt, granola, and strawberries. Garnish with mint leaves and serve.

Recipe Tips

  • Slice the strawberries uniformly and small- Ensure that your strawberry pieces are small enough that they easily fit into the jar and can fit in a spoonful without overwhelming the bite.
  • Use fresh fruit- This parfait tastes best when fresh fruit is used. Avoid canned fruit that usually has a syrup and is mushy, as well as frozen fruit that thaws mushy.
  • Check the sweetness level- If you like your yogurt sweet, then you may want to add more honey. On the other hand, if you prefer it tangy, use less. Taste test it to make sure it’s to your preference.
  • Adjust based on jar size- Depending on the size of the jar, you may need to use more than 1/4 cup of each ingredient per layer as you assemble your parfait.

FAQs

What makes a parfait parfait?

A parfait is a mixture of ingredients that are layered into tall parfait glasses. This can be done with ice cream and toppings like graham cracker crumbs, yogurt and fruit, or with chocolate mousse or pudding. This Strawberry Parfait layers granola, strawberries, and honey-sweetened yogurt.

Is a parfait a healthy breakfast?

A parfait can make a great healthy breakfast by using fresh fruit, unsweetened Greek yogurt, and granola. These provide protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals that are great for you. The only downside is that there is sugar, so if you are diabetic or need to avoid sugar (even natural sugar), then you should eat this parfait in moderation.

Serving Suggestions

This flavorful Strawberry Parfait is the perfect breakfast all on its own. But if you want to make it part of a breakfast or brunch spread, there are lots of dishes that work well with it.

  • Proteins: Serve it alongside Eggs Benedict, Crispy Air Fryer Bacon, Quiche Lorraine, or Homemade Biscuits and Sausage Gravy.
  • Pancakes: Pair this Strawberry Yogurt Parfait with Blueberry Ricotta Pancakes, German Pancakes (VIDEO), Buttermilk Pancakes, or Almond Flour Pancakes (gluten-free).
  • Smoothies: Enjoy this parfait alongside a refreshing smoothie, like this Mango Smoothie, Mandarin Banana Smoothie, or Blueberry Smoothie Bowl.
  • Beverages: Serve it with a homemade gourmet coffee, like this Caramel Frappuccino (Starbucks Copycat) and Iced Caramel Macchiato, or with a tea, like this Brown Sugar Boba.

Make This Recipe in Advance

Make ahead: Prep this parfait ahead of time by chopping the strawberries and mixing the honey with the yogurt. Store them separately in the fridge for a day or two before assembling the parfait.

Storing: Store this Strawberry Parfait in a lidded jar or container for up to 3 days. Keep in mind that the longer it sits, the softer the granola will become.

Freeze: The granola is freezable in a ziplock bag for up to 6 months. But the strawberries will freeze and thaw mushy, and the yogurt will become grainy. So, it’s best to make these parfaits fresh.
