Tropical Yogurt Parfait

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Starrynews

A twist on a yogurt parfait featuring tropical fruits and a little bit of crunch from a homemade granola! You could prep the syrup and granola the night before for quicker morning preparation – just store the syrup in the fridge and the granola in a sealed container. This makes a nice presentation when served in a clear cup to reveal the layers – individual trifle bowls work great.

Very refreshing and tasty - just the kind of 'dessert' I like to serve my family. My only reservation is that the amount of allspice added to the granola could be upped substantially as the flavour didn't come through at all and, seeing as this is a contest ingredient, should have been a little more front of the line. Good work, chef.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Gently remove the halved grapefruit pieces from the skin and place in a medium bowl. Combine with avocado.
  2. Prepare pomegranate syrup: Combine sugar and corn starch in a small saucepan, and mix well. Add pomegranate juice. Bring to a boil and simmer gently until reduced and thickened, about 5 minutes. Allow to cool.
  3. Prepare granola crumble: Preheat oven to 325°F Combine oats, butter, brown sugar, allspice, and almonds, and toss. Spread oat mixture on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Bake until light brown, about 10 minutes. Stir in coconut and return to oven until mixture is medium brown, about another 5 minutes.
  4. To make parfaits, layer yogurt in individual dishes, followed by a layer of fruit, then a drizzle of pomegranate syrup, topped with granola crumble. Add another layer of yogurt, fruit, then syrup drizzle, and finish with the granola crumble. Enjoy!
  5. Note: If your grapefruit is particularly tart, you can sprinkle a bit of sugar, to taste, on the fruit mixture before layering it into the parfait.
