This yogurt parfait is not a strict recipe, if using fresh berries try and use what’s in season as the compote will always come out tasting heavenly and if you don’t like a certain berry leave it out.

Making the compote

This compote is also a not strict recipe, if using fresh berries try and use what’s in season as the compote will always come out tasting heavenly. The best berries to use for compote recipes are strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, cherries, blackberries and cranberries.

Why do I use plain yogurt?

I use a plain yogurt for this recipe because the granola and the mixed berry compote are quite sweet. If you don’t like the taste of plain or even Greek yoghurt maybe try a coconut flavor instead. I think if you added a fruity flavored yogurt to this recipe it might become a little to sweet. But it’s your breakfast so make it using the ingredient’s you love to eat. If your feeling adventurous, why not try your hand at making your very own homemade yogurt. This Yogurt Maker comes highly recommended and has free delivery with Amazon Prime.

Changing ingredient’s

This is such an easy recipe to change up, you can change the mixed berries for chunks of peach, mango or even banana. The compote layers can be swapped for a rhubarb compote or lemon curd. You can even add a little quinoa into the yogurt or exchange the yoghurtfor cream. There are literally hundreds of different flavors to choose from. Have fun experimenting with flavors, skies the limit.

Ingredients
  

For the Compote

For the yogurt parfait

  • 150 g Plain yoghurt
  • 100 g Fresh berries
  • 50 g Your favorite granola

Instructions
 

  • The first step in making your yogurt parfait is to add fresh or frozen mixed berries, water and soft brown sugar into a small sauce pan.
    300 g Fresh or frozen mixed berries, 2-3 tbsp of water, 1 tbsp Soft brown sugar
  • Cook over a low heat and simmer for around 30 minutes.
  • Stir occasionally so it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the sauce pan.
  • When it’s finished cooking put to one side to cool (It will thicken a little more as it cools too).
  • Grab yourself a couple of glasses and simply layer yogurt, mixed berry compote and granola, repeat the layers until they almost reach the top of the glass.

Notes

Tips and Tricks
Remember if you want to get the that awesome symmetrically pleasing look, you have to fill and stack each parfait evenly in layers. That way your breakfast parfaits will certainly impress. 
If you want to add a little more flavor to the compote, add in half a teaspoon of ground cinnamon.
You can use any yogurt you like it doesn’t have to be plain.
