Posted: Updated:


1 cup plain low-fat yogurt

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

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)

1/4 cup chopped walnuts


In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the yogurt, pudding, 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, and 1 tablespoon of chopped walnuts if desired. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours.
