Healthy Strawberry and Yogurt Parfait

Hi Foodies, I wish I could eat sweets without any consequences but I cant. And no matter how many miles I ride on my bike, I just cant seem to outride the caloric intake. So, every now and then I ease up on cakes and cookies and instead, make something healthy for dessert.

This faux Strawberry Parfait is light, easy and quick to dish up. No baking, no cooking. You don’t even need a bowl. Its delicious and will curb your sweet cravings without breaking the calorie bank. Here is how its done.

Faux Parfait???

A Parfait is a French dessert which is made by boiling cream, sugar and eggs. Since we are not boiling any of these calorie dense and sugar saturated ingredients, we try to get a close resemblance with healthy ingredients.

Faux is the French word for “false” and since we are not really making a parfait, we call it a faux parfait 🙂

Parfait is a French Dessert made by reducing heavy cream, sugar and tempered eggs!

Ingredients

This Healthy Parfait requires only four ingredients, one of those ingredients might seem as a “not so healthy” Ingredient. I am of course talking about Digestive Biscuits. But actually, a lot of Digestive brands contain less than 2% sugar and some brand even offer no added sugar options.

Now even at 2% sugar, we are only using 8 biscuits. At a weight of 14.7g per biscuit. We are only looking at a total of less than 1/2 a gram per portion. Combined with all the ingredients, that’s a total of 11 grams of sugar. This is less than 1/3 of the recommended daily intake. Compared to a slice of chocolate cake which is around 35 grams of sugar per 100 grams of cake (apx 1 slice)

It is important to note, that this is based on an average according to Heart.org. People are different and your size, weight, condition and other factors can all impact this number. If you are concerned about your caloric intake or nutrition, its always recommended to see a professional to clarify your concerns.

  • 2 Tbsp Honey
  • 8 Biscuits Digestives
  • 1 Cup Strawberries
  • 1 1/2 Cups Yoghurt

How to make Healthy Strawberry Parfait

Making this recipe is as easy as 1,2,3. So lets see how its done.

Step 1

Use a small bowl or a soup dish, and combine the honey and yoghurt. Whisk it until it is well mixed. Prepare your strawberries by washing them and cutting off the leaf crown.

Step 2

Crush the biscuits either by hand or if you want a fine grain in a food blender. Now you are ready to assemble your parfait.

Step 3

Add a layer of yoghurt, followed by a thin biscuit layer and then a layer of thinly sliced strawberries. Top with another layer of yoghurt and continue this pattern until you have reached the top of the glass. Add a pinch of biscuit and a half strawberries for decoration.

Tips & Tricks

Want to add some more flavour? Why not add a tiny pinch of Jam between the layers? A small amount goes a long way. But you can also blend the strawberries and add them as a cream and not in whole pieces. This way you can also mix it up and make a strawberry yoghurt.
