Raspberry cherry yogurt parfait.

To create this, I made a Raspberry-Cherry sauce and then layered it with Vanilla Bean Yogurt. The sauce was made by combining raspberries and cherries with a little bit of water, and then cooking it down to release the liquid.

Cherries and cinnamon in a bowl.

I added a cinnamon stick to the sauce so that it would have a subtle cinnamon flavor.  The fruit is sweet enough that it didn’t need to add any extra sugar or sweetener.

The yogurt comes in three flavors, Raspberry Chocolate Chip, Mint Chocolate Chip and Vanilla Bean. I bought some of each, and I used the Vanilla Bean in this recipe.

I layered the fruit sauce with the yogurt in shot glasses to make pretty parfaits.  The sauce isn’t thick, so I didn’t even try to make distinct layers, I just added a bit of yogurt and then some sauce and let them mix together to form pretty swirls.  I topped it all off with a little sprinkling of cinnamon.

The parfaits were delicious, and are the perfect size for a quick afternoon snack. The Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt is tasty enough to feel decadent, but more nutritious than ice cream. Mid-afternoon is when I start to feel like I need a snack, and with a fruit filled yogurt parfait I can have a dessert without the guilt. Of course the yogurt also makes an excellent breakfast too!
