Yoghurt Fruit Parfait Recipe with Grapefruit Essential Oil
This yoghurt parfait with Young Living grapefruit essential oil was created by Chef Kate. It's a light, easy recipe that is ideal for breakfast, a healthy snack or as a beautiful light dessert for entertaining. You can use some of your favourite seasonal fresh fruit, frozen berries or even tinned fruit.
Note: Chef Kate likes using some grapefruit, orange and tangerine pieces as she thinks they go well with the grapefruit oil. I also like to add a few berries for colour and flavour.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
2 cups plain yoghurt or Greek yoghurt
¼ cup honey or maple syrup (to taste)
Pink grapefruit, cut in pieces
1 – 2 oranges, cut in pieces
2 tangerines, cut in pieces or slices
Fresh berries (for serving, optional)
Fresh mint leaves (optional, for serving)
In a medium bowl gently mix the yoghurt, honey and grapefruit essential oil until well combined. Check for sweetness and add a little more if desired.
Place a little of the yoghurt mixture in the bottom of each serving container - for a great presentation, use an attractive glass or mason jar. Add a small layer of mixed fruit and a few berries and then yoghurt again.
Repeat the layers until all the ingredients have been used, finishing with a fruit layer and a few fresh berries and a mint leaf. Serve immediately or chill until ready to serve. You can prepare them the night before, so they are ready to serve for a quick and healthy breakfast.
Chef Kate tip: You’ll need enough fruit to make 3 – 4 layers depending on the size of the glass or containers you are using. You can also add some Einkorn Flakes or Einkorn Granola and/or nuts and seeds if you like. Shredded coconut or Dried Wolf Berries is also nice sprinkled on top.
