The Best Greek Yogurt Parfait

A parfait but make it healthier. We did just that by using our favorite summer ingredients including bright lemon, juicy berries, protein packed Greek yogurt, and a simple graham cracker crust. Serve this as a breakfast parfait or a mid afternoon snack when you’re craving something delicious, healthy, and filling.

What You Will Need

  • Greek yogurt – We used plain yogurt so that we could control the sweetness with the honey and a full fat variety to provide a thicker consistency. However, feel free to use vanilla greek yogurt or your favorite yogurt variety.
  • lemon zest – Just a bit to add a fresh, summer flavor throughout.
  • lemon juice – A bright citrus flavor pairs perfectly with the creamy yogurt and sweet berries.
  • honey – Just a bit to add some subtle sweetness.  Feel free to use maple syrup if that’s more convenient.
  • graham crackers – A simple way to add texture and flavor throughout.
  • butter – Just a bit to add some moisture to the crust.
  • fresh berries – We suggest using fresh blueberries and/or blackberries, but feel free to use your favorite fruit topping.

Are Greek Yogurt Parfaits Healthy

A homemade parfait with Greek yogurt is a wonderful way to control the amount of sugar and allows for a nice serving of protein. Plus, fresh fruit provide dietary fiber and vitamins that help you to feel your best. And a bit of honey as a natural sweetener adds a fresh flavor and will satisfy your sweet tooth. And while this recipe is deemed healthy, the best part is that it’ll still taste like a real treat. Scroll down to the bottom of the recipe card for full nutritional information.

How To Make A Greek Yogurt Parfait

Start by gathering and measuring your ingredients.

In a small bowl combine a cup of yogurt, lemon zest, lemon juice, and honey. Using a clean spoon, take a taste and adjust the sweetness by adding more honey if you’d like.

Next, make the parfait base layer by adding your crushed up graham crackers and melted butter in a separate bowl and mix to combine. Divide your graham cracker mixture into two glasses and gently press down to form a crust.

Finally, top the graham cracker crust with the yogurt mixture, berries, and some additional lemon zest.

Take a taste and feel free to add a drizzle of honey on top if you like your parfaits a bit sweeter.
