Blackberry and Muesli Parfait



I know I know another Parfait recipe :-), blogs are filled with them right now, but why not its easy, healthy and a nice light summer dessert. I got a big box of blackberries last week from the farmers market and to be honest they were a tad tart for me. So a great way to use fruit like this is to simply cook them with some sugar and make a sauce. This can be used for parfaits, with oatmeal or save for later in the freezer. 


Ingredients:

  • one pint/ big box of blackberries
  • 1/2 cup of sugar or as desired depending on what level of sweetness you desire. 
  • 1/2 cup of low fat natural yoghurt 
  • and a generous handful of muesli 
Method:

  1. cook the blackberries with sugar until they reduce down, about 10 - 15 minutes allow it to cool
  2. get a little glass add yogurt, then the fruit and the muesli 
  3. enjoy


So who else is on the parfait bandwagon?

On another note I am co hosting #frifotos on twitter tomorrow, its one of my favorite hash tags each friday all day folks share pictures related to a given theme. This week its summer, be that a beach, a pool, summer produce come join folks around the world, tag your picture and enjoy others :-)

  7. Blackberries don't make it home anymore. I buy a little box and normally finish it when I am running other errands. I love parfaits in the mornings, so easy to eat and don't have an excuse when I arrive at work.

  17. Delicious! Love the fresh blackberries. So much better to sweeten your own plain yogurt, than buy the pre-sweetened at the store :-)
