Friday has arrived! I feel like the days are flying by being in Culinary School. I’m learning SO much, and loving every minute of it!
Since I’m in a condensed program, we are learning at a fast pace and cooking anywhere between 4-8 recipes a day, some of which have very intense directions. Many times, by the time I get home, I just want to make/eat something that is super light and simple. That being said, this week’s recipe is a great embodiment of this light and simple attitude: Yogurt Parfait!
This recipe is only four ingredients and is super flavorful and light! It’s absolutely perfect for a little something sweet to end with after dinner, or perhaps a midday snack to get you through the remainder of the day without housing that bag of chocolate and dealing with the subsequent feelings of guilt. (I understand, I was once a chocoholic as well. The first step to getting better is admitting you have a problem: Chocoholics Anonymous.)
Below are the ingredients for this yummy dessert.
2 T. Greek Yogurt (Recommended brand is Fage)
1/4 Cup of blueberries
1/4 Cup of strawberries – quartered
1 T. of granola
You can use any brand/type of granola. I happened to come across this really wonderful brand in the grocery store, Mamma Chia’s Cinnamon Pecan Cluster, that I felt added some great texture and flavor. (And because Chia Seeds make me feel fancy.)
First, I washed all of my fruit. Then I took the strawberries and quartered them.
Next, I layered my items in a bowl; Greek yogurt, strawberries, blueberries and crumbled granola.
It’s literally that easy!
I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you for following along with me on Stark Naked Cooking! I look forward to seeing you next Friday for our next recipe! Until then, stay classy.
