Fruit parfait recipe
Parfait Recipe – When my friend Shalini told me about this recipe,I had no clue of What is parfait,how it is made, how it tastes. Immediately I browsed for the recipe & images.I found in Wikipedia that Parfait is a type of food that is eaten as a dessert or breakfast in United States. It is a French word that means perfect.

In the United States, parfait refers to either the traditional French-style dessert or to a popular variant, the American parfait, made by layering parfait cream, ice cream, and/or flavored gelatins in a tall, clear parfait glass, and topping the creation with whipped cream, fresh or canned fruit. In Canada and the United States, parfaits may also be made by using greek yogurt layered with granola, nuts or fresh fruits, such as peaches, strawberries or blueberries. 

I loved the simplicity of this recipe and tried it for our Sunday breakfast using strawberry flavored yoghurt layered with muesli & fresh fruits. It came out very colorful and we loved its taste too. So I thought of sharing this easy dessert and breakfast recipe for you to try if you are bored with our usual Cereals with milk combo. Its so healthy &a tummy filling recipe. After tasting this strawberry yogurt parfait, I wish to try all the variants of parfait recipe and taste it. Ok, Lets see how to make this easy and healthy fruit yogurt parfait recipe.

Vegans, please replace yogurt with non-dairy yogurt. Actual recipe calls for granola, but I used muesli here. It was super crunchy to taste !

Cuisine: Indian
Category: Breakfast
Serves:  2
Prep time: 5 Minutes
Cook time: 5 Minutes
Total time: 10 Minutes


  • Granola Or Muesli - 4 tbsp
  • Flavored yoghurt - 2 cups ( I used DANONE Strawberry yogurt – 80gms)
  • Fresh fruits ( Blueberry , Strawberry,Apple and Cherries) - as needed
  • Refrigerate or freeze the yoghurt for an hour and let it be cold and thick. I bought Danone & Nestle yogurt. But used Danone. Take all the required ingredients and keep it ready.

  • In a clear glass/Parfait glass, put 2 tbsp of muesli as the first layer. Then add half of the yogurt from 80gms cup. Again layer it with muesli and then add the remaining yoghurt. Lastly layer it with chopped fresh fruits. Garnish with a fresh mint leaf and serve immediately. Healthy and tasty fruit yogurt parfait is ready. Enjoy ! Doesn't it sound easy ?? ;)
( If you use greek yogurt, you can mix sugar with fresh fruits and then layer it to give a sweet taste. I used sweetened Strawberry flavored yoghurt. So I din’t use any extra sugar. For variations, you can use chopped banana pieces, cranberry, raspberry etc)
If you don't have flavored yogurt in hand, just blend the strawberry adding some sugar, Mix with homemade thick curd & hang it for an hour by tieing them in a cloth or freexe it for an hour to make it thick. Excess water content would be removed. Then you can use this thick curd for making parfait !
