Strawberry and Yoghurt Parfait

Use this recipe to whack someone who says, “Healthy food never tastes good” or “Delicious food can never be healthy”.

 

The high achieved out of creating something yum out of the seasonal favourite in under 5 minutes is supreme. What’s more, your calorie meter will be dancing with joy even after you scoff down 4-5 helpings of this at one go.

 

I dislike eating fruits (sounds ridiculous but it’s true) but still found myself surreptitiously adding more strawberry to my portion.

So if you’re the “Ew! Fruits!” type, then be prepared to get converted.

 

Also, the parfait looks like Christmas in a cup! Now who in their right mind would not like to have that?!

INGREDIENTS: (for 4 servings)

  • Yoghurt (low-fat) : 2 cups
  • Fresh strawberries (chopped): 2 cup
  • Brown sugar:  2 tablespoons
  • Lemon juice: 1 tsp.
  • Digestive/ Diet cookies (crumbled): 2 cups
  • Low fat butter: 2 tbsps.
  • Toasted almond flakes: For garnishing

 

METHOD:

To create strawberry compote, put strawberries in a hot pan, sprinkle the sugar and drizzle lemon juice. Heat till the strawberries will start releasing juices and the mixture is sticky and bubbly.

 

Bash the cookies to crumbles and pour melted butter over it. Mix thoroughly.

 

To assemble:

Take a jar or a nice-looking glass container and start layering the elements. There is no rule as to what goes first so you can decide the order and number of the layers. I was out of toasted almond flakes but I usually sprinkle some as garnish and for a crunch.

 

Happy Winter!
