Fruit and Nut Parfait

Much of this recipe is to taste and up to you how much you want to use, but it will give you a starting point for customization.

For the plain yogurt, I had planned on using Stonyfield Farms Whole Milk Plain Yogurt, but the store was out. Instead, I used Brown Cow Farms Plain Smooth and Creamy Cream Top Yogurt. It ended up being a little cheaper, but I am still happy with the product. I think either will work if you want to use a whole milk yogurt like I was. Otherwise, feel free to use plain yogurt of your choice. Or you can skip the fruit yogurt recipe all together an use whichever fruit yogurt you like. I made about 1/2 cup for my parfait.

Fruit Yogurt

  • Equipment: Food Processor
  • 1/2 cup Plain Yogurt
  • 1.5 tsp Honey (I used Clover Honey)
  • 2/3 cup Frozen Fruit (I used Wild Blueberries and Red Raspberries), you will have leftovers for parfait
