RECIPE: Parfait of Greek Yogurt, Cherry Compote & Granola
Updated: Oct 2, 2018
1 cup plain Greek yogurt (non-fat)*
¼ cup of your favorite granola, equivalent to 125 calories
¼ cup of homemade cherry compote – recipe below
Assemble parfait by layering yogurt, granola, and compote. You can also pour the compote over the yogurt and sprinkle with the granola.
*Variation You can also use non-fat vanilla yogurt if you don’t like the taste of plain yogurt. Just add a little less cherry compote.
(Makes ¼ cup)
½ cup fresh pitted cherries (about 12 whole cherries)
3 tbsp water
2 tsp agave
½ stick cinnamon bark
½ anise star
Combine all the ingredients in a small heavy-bottom saucepan and bring to a boil.
Reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cherries are soft and the compote is thick and syrupy, about 8 minutes.
Cool to room temperature then remove the cinnamon and anise.
Use immediately or store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 10 days.
