In France, the word “parfait” simply means “perfect”. And while there are many different interpretations of the perfect yogurt parfait recipe, the dish has been around in some form or another for centuries.
The earliest recorded mention of a yogurt parfait-like dish comes from 16th century Turkey. At that time, yogurt was a popular ingredient in many different types of dishes, both sweet and savory. It is believed that the first yogurt parfaits were created by layering yogurt with fruit and nuts, much like the way they are made today.
The popularity of yogurt parfaits began to spread throughout Europe in the 18th century. By the 19th century, the dish had become a staple in French cuisine. And it wasn’t long before the rest of the world caught on to the deliciousness of yogurt parfaits.
For a delicious yogurt parfait, start by layering your favorite yogurt in a bowl or cup. Then, add a layer of your favorite granola. You can also add some fresh fruit like blueberries or strawberries for an extra burst of flavor. Finally, top it off with some crunchy nuts or seeds for texture. For a fun twist, you can also try adding different spices to the yogurt or adding some crunchy cereal. Enjoy your yogurt parfait with a spoon or a straw!
