We all enjoy having a yogurt parfait as a snack or breakfast. There are so many combinations, but the boys favorite is a Mixed Berry Yogurt Parfait. These make a great breakfast for when you are on-the-go since you can grab a jar and a spoon and have your meal ready.
We buy a large container of yogurt and split it out since we are trying to cut down on waste and eat as healthy as possible. We can make 4 yogurt parfaits from one container of yogurt. Fruit is a favorite at our house, so we use it a lot. If you like Greek yogurt, you could use that, too. I’ve tried plain yogurt and added sweetener and it isn’t the same. For now, we buy vanilla flavored yogurt.
The best part of making your own parfait is customizing it yourself. When we make parfaits, I let the boys put theirs together. This one uses their favorite berries: strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries fresh from the garden. Normally, I make the parfaits in a jar to keep in the refrigerator. When the parfaits will be eaten immediately, we build them in serving glasses or in a bowl.
I like to use fresh berries when we have them, but frozen work, too. If you use frozen berries, the parfaits need time to sit in the refrigerator while they thaw.
Step by Step
Prepare your parfait jars by cleaning out old glass jars or mason jars and find the matching lids.
Spoon the yogurt into each jar until they are about 1/3 full. Put a few pieces of the berries into each jar.
Add a few more scoops of yogurt to the jars. Top with more berries and walnuts if you want them.
Either eat immediately or seal and place in the refrigerator. The Mixed Berry Yogurt Parfait can be refrigerated for up to 3-4 days.
