Yogurt Berry Parfaits - The Foodie Affair

My mom gave me these little glasses a few years ago for my birthday. They’re shaped like a tall shot glass and came with in a pack of twenty-four with itty-bitty spoons. Adorbs!

The first few time I used them, I ditched the spoons and used the glasses to serve layered cocktails for a family party. It was a fun and handy way to throw back a festive cocktail in mini shot glasses, but they’re actually marketed to be used with the spoons, so you can dive into something delicious.

The clear and cylindrical glass is a great stage for layering. I made these parfaits for brunch, an easy addition to an already full table. Grab one and go, taste and enjoy was what I was thinking when I served these.

You don’t have to run out and buy these glasses to entertain this recipe (Pier 1 <cough>). The same layering can done in juice or wine glasses. I also used mini jelly jars, so I could take them to work with me for my afternoon snack.

The layers are my lemon curd and berry sauce recipes. I was a little worried that the flavors would be fighting each other for palate attention. Nope, they played nicely, and complemented the third layer, plain Greek yogurt as well. The tart yogurt mellows the sweetness of the curd and sauce. A delicious combination that had us searching for a few more tastes!

    I love being the first to respond! I would be love the first one served this little blueberry surprise too. I love the tart and the sweet layers. Do you use natural yogurt or vanilla? Would you call this breakfast or dessert? I would eat it at either time…Love your fun new props! Just pinned! Take Care, BAM

      Haha! The perks of being in Hong Kong. When were asleep (or should be) here in the U.S., you get center stage 🙂 Thanks so much, Bam. I use plain Greek yogurt. It’s sweet enough to be a dessert, but I’ve eaten it for breakfast and a snack!

    I adore the sound of these. Anything with lemon curd is good in my opinion, as is anything with berry sauce – put them together and wow, what a fab combination! Great for an gathering, as could make up lots in advance, and I’m thinking I’ll take some on a picnic in a cool bag. Thanks so much for the recipe – I LOVE it! ♡
