Healthy Recipe: Lemon-Vanilla Berry Parfait

Submitted by: Alicia Jennerjohn, RD CD

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 2 (3.5-ounce) containers fat-free vanilla pudding
  • 2 tablespoons bottled lemon curd (such as Dickinson’s)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 3 cups mixed berries (such as blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries)
  • Fresh mint leaves (optional)

Preparation:

1. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the yogurt, pudding, lemon curd, and vanilla extract; set aside.
2. In a medium mixing bowl, stir the honey, lemon zest, and lemon juice until combined. Add the mixed berries, and gently stir with a rubber spatula to coat them with the honey mixture.
3. Assemble the parfaits in four 8-ounce glasses. Using measuring spoons, scoop 3 tablespoons of the yogurt mixture into each glass. Top with 1/4 cup of the berries, then another 3 tablespoons yogurt, and another 1/4 cup berries. Garnish each yogurt parfait with fresh mint, if desired. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours.
