Last Saturday I helped celebrate a dear friend and her upcoming baby with a baby shower brunch. One of my jobs was to bring yogurt parfaits. I turned no further than a yogurt parfait recipe that has become a staple for my sister and me. We have used it for different showers, brunches, and family breakfast times.
When the Fall hits, my husband and I have a tradition of making breakfast, coffee and watching College Gameday. That is our happy space: good coffee, good brunch food and college football. A yogurt parfait is a great side to any breakfast casserole, pancakes, eggs and bacon, etc. Or, it can definitely stand on its own. If you want any easy way to spice up your brunch menu (and make it look good), look no further than this simple five ingredient yogurt parfait.
So what are these easy five ingredients? This recipe should make 12 small cup:
16 oz. of vanilla yogurt
8 oz. of cool whip (the picture shows a 16 oz. tub, I still used just 8 oz. of that to give it the right balance).
1 carton of strawberries
1 carton of blueberries
½ cup of brown sugar
Next, wash your strawberries and cut them long ways and set aside.
Fill the cups with the yogurt and cool whip mixture (I usually fill about ¾ of a small cup with the mixture).
Top yogurt mixture with cut strawberries in a circular pattern. Wash your blueberries and place them in the center of the strawberries. Sprinkle the brown sugar on top and voila – you have a beautiful fruit and yogurt parfait!
Note: Depending on your taste, this would still be good with more fruit or different fruit. We like the look of the brown sugar, but granola would also taste yummy.
