It’s still winter…. ugh…
Do you need a break from the cold? An escape to a happy place, maybe a bit tropical?
Sometimes, that happy place involves coconut. Actually, I think all happy places should have an option for coconut.
I found Chobani coconut yogurt at the store the other day. I thought… hmm… this could work in a great smoothie or yogurt parfait. Then, I realized, I’ve never made a blackberry parfait and voila, here it is. I made it fancy, too, so I could share one with my sweetie.
I used graham crackers for the crumbly layers, but you can use oatmeal or other cereal, if you prefer.
Coconut Yogurt Parfait with Strawberry and Blackberry Compote
- 2 cups coconut yogurt
- 1 cup fresh blackberries
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
- 1 cup graham crackers, crumbled
- 2 mint leaves, for decoration
|Scoop spoonfuls of yogurt into parfait glass (or wine glass) until the glass is 1/4 full.|
|Sprinkle in a 1/2 inch layer of graham cracker crumbs.|
|Scoop in another layer of yogurt until the glass is about halfway full.|
|Make another 1/2 inch layer of graham cracker crumbs.|
|Make another layer of yogurt, filling the glass up to almost full, leaving about an inch for the last layer of berry compote.|
|In a small bowl, mash up the blackberries until they are small chunks. Mix in the strawberries and honey until blended.|
|Add the berry compote as the last layer.|
|Serve cold and enjoy.|
