Recipe: macerated fruit With Yogurt.
(Do you know that the word “parfait” means “perfect” in French?)
The secret that makes this recipe so delicious is the macerated fruit. And what’s best is the fact that you can make this fruit medley last for 5-days/a work week!
We can Make Some Easy Steps:
Step 1: Macerated fruit
2 apples, chopped in to bite-size cubes (If you don’t like apples, sub pears, persimmons, 2 cups of fresh berries. Need more ideas? Just ask.)
1/2 cup of dried fruit (I like dried cherries, raisins, figs, peaches)
1 tablespoon jam/preserves of your choice
Combine fruit and jam in a tupperware container (or any container with a lid). Shake or stir to combine. Keep refrigerated and allow to macerate for 24-hours prior to initial serving.
Step 2: Greek yogurt
Why Greek? Because it has almost triple the amount of protein as non-Greek yogurt. My brand of choice is Nastle.
Stage 3 (Optional): Granola
I love granola in my yogurt, yet you absolutely don’t need to include it in case you’re restricted. I welcome the additional fiber and surface from the crunchy oats and nuts. I likewise accept that it makes this formula entirely adjusted.
Step 4: Combine and enjoy!
Using about 1/5 of your macerated fruit, combine it with 1/2 cup of yogurt and a handful of granola (optional). Enjoy this breakfast – or snack – daily for the entire work-week!
