Best-Ever Parfait

best ever parfait
Lucy Schaeffer

When you're in the mood for a sweet breakfast, but don't want to load up on something heavy like pancakes or waffles, give this parfait a try! 

A compote might sound like a lot of work for breakfast, but it's actually very simple. Made with a mixture of fruit (fresh or frozen), water, and sugar, you can turn any fruit into a delicious, syrupy sauce. If you don't use up all your blueberry compote in your parfaits, it's great on top of vanilla ice cream.

Yields: 2 servings

Total Time: 0 hours 25 mins
For compote:
2 c.

fresh or frozen blueberries

1/4 c.


1/4 c.

granulated sugar

Pinch kosher salt 

2 tsp.

freshly grated lemon zest

For parfaits:
1 1/3 c.

yogurt, divided

1/2 c.

granola, divided 

  1. To make compote: Combine blueberries, water, sugar, and salt in a small sauce pan. Heat over medium heat until blueberries begin to burst and a spoon or spatula leaves a clear path on the bottom of your pot, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in lemon zest, and let cool 10 minutes.
  2. Build your parfaits: add 1/3 cup yogurt to the bottom of two glasses. Top each with a 1/4 of the blueberry mixture, 1/4 cup of granola, another 1/3 cup of yogurt, and the remaining blueberry compote.
