Oh hey, there. Sorry, just let me lick off this spoon and I’ll be right with ya.
Okay, yeah. Now I can focus. So, i’ll be honest; I definitely wasn’t expecting this recipe to go my way, let alone turn out as beautifully scrumptious as it did. If you’ve been following my food adventures, you may have noticed I’ve been using strawberries in pretty much everything. I go a little crazy when they’re in season. Even thinking about how they’re soon going to disappear off the Karachi market gives me withdrawal. But that’s a rant for another time. For now, let’s talk about the newest addition to my list of super easy, strawberry-centric recipes – this strawberry parfait.
I know parfaits are traditionally meant to be layered with granola. But I wanted a quicker and easier alternative. Something that required minimum effort and no baking. So I crushed some digestive biscuits, added peanuts to the mixture and voila! Best decision I’ve ever made. Food wise, I mean. Follow this recipe (and of course, feel free to add your own touches) for the best strawberry parfait ever. Seriously, I’m not even exaggerating.
The Best Strawberry Parfait Ever
A crunchy base topped with layers of yogurt, fresh strawberries and a sprinkling of corn flakes.
Total time: 10 minutes
3-4 digestive biscuits
Your choice of nuts (I used roasted peanuts)
1/2 cup yogurt (healthier alternative: non-fat Greek yogurt)
1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon honey
- Crush the digestive biscuits and add nuts. Layer at the bottom of the container. I actually wished later that I had done more than one layer of this so you might wanna try that.
- Add a dollop of yogurt and spread it out evenly. If you’d like your yogurt to be sweet you can mix in honey before layering.
- If you’re not going for the healthy version, add a teaspoon of sugar to the strawberries. Wait for approx. five minutes until they release juice. Layer the strawberries with juice onto the yogurt. You can also just layer the fresh strawberries without adding any sugar.
- Finish off with a sprinkling of corn flakes for some added crunch. Or frosted flakes, if you’re not going for the healthy version.
