Recipe For Cherry and Berry Yogurt Granola Parfait


Granola parfait has the perfect components to start the day: the crunch of the granola, the creaminess of the yogurt and the sweetness of the fruits. Most important, this will keep you full until lunch time.

I’ve been married for almost five years, and I think that cooking is the best way to say ‘I love you’. It might sound sappy but I love seeing my hubby’s smile in the morning when I bring him breakfast in bed. Make this for someone special in your life, and I guarantee they will appreciate it.

2. Ingredients for Cherry and Berry Yogurt Granola Parfait

  • 2 cups plain whole yogurt
  • 2 Tbs crème fraîche (optional)
  • 4 Tbs sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup granola
  • 3/4 cup cherries
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 2 tsp fresh mint, finely chopped, + extra for garnish
  • 1 tsp powdered sugar, for dusting

3. Directions:

  1. Wash the cherries. Stem them. Cut them in half and remove the pit. Gather all the cherries in a bowl. Sprinkle with sugar. Add a teaspoon of finely chopped mint. Toss the cherries to ensure all the cherries are coated with sugar. Some juice will form at the bottom of the bowl. Toss occasionally. Let stand for at least 15 minutes.
  2. In another bowl, repeat the same procedure with the blackberries.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the yogurt, crème fraîche and the condensed milk together.
  4. In a mortar and pestle or using a rolling pin, coarsely crumble the granola.
  5. I usually serve granola parfaits in clear tall glasses so that you can still see each layer. The size of the glass depends on the appetite of the eater!
  6. Be organized. Line up the glasses. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of cherries into each glass. Create an even layer. Create another layer with about 2 tablespoons of yogurt over the cherries. Smooth the surface, then sprinkle about a tablespoon of granola. Repeat the same layers until you reach the top of the glass. Finish with yogurt. Top with a few blackberries and a teaspoon of granola. Garnish with a small mint leaf and dust with powdered sugar.
  7. Serve with a cup of Vietnamese coffee, masala chai or green tea.
