Layer your favourite fruit, yoghurt and granola to create the perfect parfait.

Read on to take inspiration from our Banana, Blueberry and Coconut parfait and learn how to make a simple berry compote...


 
Ingredients we used:

  • Bananas and Blueberries

  • Vanilla Yoghurt

  • Granola and shredded coconut

  • Liquid Honey 

  • Optional - Sugar free Compote recipe below

 

What to do:

Layer your ingredients in a thin tall glass or jar however you like and enjoy as a breakfast or desert.

TIP: Pay attention to how much you put into the glass to make sure it's a healthy portion size for you.

Seasonal Fruit: Visit your local fruit and vegetable market and buy the fruit that is in season. It's cheaper and even more delicious. We got a small punnet of fresh blueberries for $2.50 and they are about $4.20 at our supermarket!


 
     

 
 
   
 

Optional Berry Compote

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

  • 1/4 tsp lemon juice

  • 1 tsp corn starch or 1 tsp arrowroot

  • Optional: Honey to taste

 

Instructions:

Always get an adult to help or supervise when using the stove!

1. Add the berries and lemon juice to the pot and sprinkle on the corn starch or arrowroot powder.

2. Stir over a medium heat crushing about half of the berries with your mixing spoon.

3. When the mixture begins to thicken remove from heat and pour into a jar for storing- it will thicken even more as it cools too.

4. You can have this compote warm on pancakes, yoghurt or other treats but it's best served cool in the parfait so it doesn't steam up the glass.
