Yogurt Parfait

Simple, easy and elegant; yet healthy and nutritious too, this yogurt parfait is a beautiful breakfast, brunch, snack or dessert!  Simply layer plain yogurt with fresh fruit or fruit compote of your choice.  This variation has fresh mango and blueberry compote.  Add an optional topping of hemp hearts for extra protein, fibre and  healthy omega fatty acids.  

To make a fruit compote, simply put fresh or frozen fruit into a saucepan with a little water over medium heat.  Once the juices are released and it is forming a sauce turn heat to low and continue cooking to thicken. Add sugar or sweetener if needed.  Spices and other flavours such as lemon or orange zest, ginger or cinnamon work well in fruit compotes too.

I recommend buying plain yogurt and adding fruit, fruit compote, jam, honey, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon etc.,  to make up your own flavours.
