What is a yogurt parfait?

Parfaits are a great choice for a grab-and-go breakfast or snack. You can prep them in advance or make them quickly and easily when needed. Parfaits include yogurt layered with honey, granola and fresh fruit. Pile on the toppings to create a fresh and filling meal or snack.

Make ahead yogurt parfait

These take less than 10 minutes to assemble. You can make them ahead of time and store them in small mason jars (8 ounces). Keep them in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

If you make them in advance, do not add the granola to the yogurt. Adding the granola ahead of time may result in soggy granola. Instead, place a small amount of plastic wrap over the parfait and then top with the granola. Cover the jar and store until ready to serve. Remove the plastic wrap and mix in the the granola before serving.

Fruit and yogurt parfait ingredients

  • Yogurt: You can use any type of yogurt in parfaits, either dairy or non-dairy yogurt. Greek yogurt is the preferred type of yogurt for parfaits because it is higher in protein and will keep you fuller longer. But, regular plain yogurt works just fine.
  • Honey: The honey adds a subtle sweetness and flavor to the yogurt.
  • Fruit: The options are endless! A few of our favorite fruit combinations are below, but feel free to experiment with your favorite colors and flavors.
  • Granola: Use your favorite granola. We love using homemade granola because it’s extra crunchy and less expensive than store-bought. However, there are some great options at the grocery store too, so choose your favorite.
  • Toasted Coconut: If you’re looking for a little extra crunch without too much texture, sprinkle on some toasted coconut flakes. It adds the perfect amount of crunch and coconut flavor.
  • Nuts or dried fruit: Whole or chopped nuts and dried fruit are another great option to add crunch and flavor. Almonds, pecans, walnuts, raisins and cranberries are great choices.
