Impress your family and guests with this easy and quick fruit parfait dessert. Use fresh seasonal fruits or frozen fruit any time of year. The velvety texture from the yogurt will have everyone looking for seconds.

Make the fruit salad up ahead of time then layer the yogurt and fruit together in a fancy glass or dessert dish just before you're ready to serve.

Use regular or frozen yogurt and top with granola or nuts for an added treat. For those with a sweet tooth drizzle a bit of maple syrup over the dessert.


Cook Time

Prep Time: 10 min.

Total Time: 15 min.

Serves: 4 or more depending on how much fruit and yogurt you use

Ingredients

  • strawberries
  • blueberries
  • raspberries
  • cantaloupe
  • nectarines
  • yogurt (I used vanilla)

Instructions

  1. Wash and cut up the fruit the way you prefer to. I used a melon baller for the cantaloupe, sliced the strawberries in half, cut the nectarine into pieces, and left the blueberries and raspberries whole.
  2. Place all the fruit into a bowl, gently mix, cover, and refrigerate until ready to build the parfait.
  3. For this dessert I used crystal water goblets starting with fruit on the bottom followed by a layer of yogurt. I kept layering until the glass was full.
  4. Serve and ENJOY!

Have a sweet tooth?

      It looks so pretty and appetizing. That is what I will be needing after all the cookies are gone. Thanks for showing the fruit and yogurt.

      Merry Christmas

      This sounds and looks just gorgeous! I could eat this anytime really but would love it for a breakfast or a dessert. Would be easy to make for a dinner for guest too.
