6. Vanilla-Lemon Berry Parfaits

Vanilla-Lemon Berry Parfaits

If you're more into cooler treats that feature lots of fruits, this parfait is a sweet, creamy delight.

Again, it's incredibly adaptable, since you can really incorporate whatever fruits are in season, or your favorites.

It's also very easy to make, which is always a plus, but the results will taste like you spent all day on it.

The mixture of yogurt and pudding, by the way, is absolutely amazing!

Ingredients:

1 cup plain low-fat yogurt

2 (3.5-ounce) containers fat-free vanilla pudding

2 tablespoons bottled lemon curd (such as Dickinson's)

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons honey

Zest of 1 lemon

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

3 cups mixed berries (such as blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries)

Fresh mint leaves (optional)

Directions:

In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the yogurt, pudding, lemon curd, and vanilla extract;

set aside.

In a medium mixing bowl, stir the honey, lemon zest, and lemon juice until combined.

Add the mixed berries, and gently stir with a rubber spatula to coat them with the honey mixture.

Assemble the parfaits in four 8-ounce glasses.

Using measuring spoons, scoop 3 tablespoons of the yogurt mixture into each glass.

Top with 1/4 cup of the berries, then another 3 tablespoons yogurt, and another 1/4 cup berries.

Garnish each yogurt parfait with fresh mint, if desired.

Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours.
