Strawberry & Yogurt Parfait
If, for some reason, you need something to do with the first fresh fruit, sweet strawberries of the season besides pop them straight into your mouth, slice them up and add them to a cup of yogurt. You can find strawberries for the time being from Johndale Farm, Fletcher Farm, Faust Farm, and Mendez Farm. Pick up fresh dairy yogurt from Country Girls Creamery, G&M Goat Farm, Brown Hat Farm or dairy-free coconut yogurt from South of Eden. Top with fresh-from-the-market granola from Windfield Farm, South of Eden, or Nut-N-Seedy for some added crunch. I know what I’m having for breakfast!
- 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- ½ cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
- ¼ cup granola
Combine strawberries and sugar in a small bowl and let stand until the berries start to release juice, about 5 minutes.
To assemble parfait, layer yogurt and the strawberries with their juice in a 2-cup container. Top with granola.
Make Ahead Tip: Assemble the parfait up to 2 hours ahead.
The Crescent City Farmers Market operates weekly year-round throughout New Orleans. The CCFM hosts 70+ local small farmers, fishers, and food producers, and more than 150,000 shoppers annually.
