What You’ll Need

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

Ingredient Notes

  • Strawberries- For the best flavor, opt for fresh, ripe strawberries. Look for ones that are deeply red in color, firm but not hard, and without any bruises or soft spots.
  • Granola- You can use your preferred brand of granola or even homemade granola.
  • Yogurt- Choose plain, full-fat yogurt for its richness and tangy taste.

Add-ins and Substitutions

  • Substitute other fruit- Experiment with different fruits such as blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, peaches, pineapple, kiwi, or cantaloupe.
  • Use maple syrup- Replace honey with maple syrup for a different flavor profile while still achieving the desired level of sweetness.
  • Substitute flavored yogurt- Instead of plain yogurt, try flavored options like vanilla, ensuring you adjust the honey quantity accordingly to avoid overly sweetening the parfait. You can also use dairy-free or low-fat yogurt.
  • Add whipped cream- Transform this into a dessert by adding whipped cream or using it as a yogurt substitute. You can use store-bought whipped cream or make your own Chantilly Cream.

How to Make Strawberry Parfait

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

Pro Tip:  Taste the yogurt and honey mixture to adjust sweetness levels to your preference. Taste preferences vary, so adjust accordingly.

Steps to make Strawberry Parfait: chop the strawberries, then mix the yogurt and honey with a whisk.
  • Assemble the parfait. Layer 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 one suggestion is yogurt, granola, and strawberries. Garnish with mint leaves and serve.

Recipe Tips

  • Slice the strawberries uniformly and small- Ensure the strawberry pieces are small enough to fit into the jar and be easily scooped up without overwhelming each bite.
  • Use fresh fruit- Fresh fruit works best for this parfait. Avoid canned fruit that tends to be mushy from syrup, or thawed frozen fruit that becomes mushy upon thawing.
  • Check sweetness level- Adjust honey quantity based on your preferred sweetness. Taste the mix to ensure it meets your desired level of sweetness.
  • Adjust for jar size- Depending on the jar size, you may need to use more than 1/4 cup of each ingredient for each layer as you build your parfait.

Storage: Keep this Strawberry Parfait in a sealed jar or container for up to 3 days. Note that the granola may soften the longer it sits.

Freezing: The granola can be frozen in a ziplock bag for up to 6 months. However, freezing may cause the strawberries to become mushy and the yogurt to become grainy, so it’s preferable to make the parfaits fresh.
