Ingredients & substitutions

  • Berries: For that red, white and blue presentation, use fresh strawberries and blueberries. If not making for the holidays, you can absolutely use other fruits and berries you have.
  • Yogurt: Vanilla greek yogurt is used in the recipe but it works well with plain Greek yogurt, regular yogurt or plant-based yogurt.
  • Sugar: To macerate the strawberries. You can use any type of granulated sugar or switch to honey or maple syrup
  • Granola: Granola adds a nice crunchy texture. Use your favorite store bought granola, or try it with my Cranberry Almond Granola or Chocolate Granola.

Tips for making the recipe

  1. User clear cups: What’s beautiful about parfaits is seeing the colorful layers alternative between fruit, yogurt and granola. Using clear cups makes it more visually appealing.
  2. Make sure the yogurt is cold before using: If the yogurt is at room temperature, it may easily bleed into the other layers, affecting the presentation.
  3. Save the granola for the top: If you don’t plan to serve these parfaits immediately, you can consider not adding the granola until right before serving and then just placing on top so that they don’t soften and get soggy.
  4. Don’t skip macerating the strawberries. This helps to soften them and will also help to make them sweeter.

Frequently asked questions

Can you make them ahead of time?

These fruit yogurt parfaits are best enjoyed fairly soon after making them so that the layers stay separated, but they will keep well for a day or two covered in the fridge. You can macerate the strawberries overnight, so all you have to do is build the layers.

Can you make this with frozen fruits?

It’s best to use fresh fruits for this granola parfait. Frozen fruits contain more water and their colors will bleed into the yogurt once they are thawed.

Can you make them with other fruits?

These are perfectly festive for the 4th July and memorial day, but you can easily make these with other fresh fruits if you like. Bananas, mango, clementines and peaches all work great. Check out these other parfait recipes:
