20 Greek Yogurt Recipes (Yogurt Parfaits & More!)

  • Author: Sonja Overhiser
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 0 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


Here’s a deliciously easy breakfast and brunch idea: the Yogurt Parfait! This layered cup looks fancy but takes minutes to make.


  • ½ cup Peanut Butter Granola, Crispy Homemade Granola, or purchased granola
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt (or plain yogurt)
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup frozen or fresh strawberries*
  • 1 cup fresh berries like blueberries, blackberries, raspberries or a mix
  • ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Mix the Greek yogurt, 1 tablespoon maple syrup, and the vanilla.
  2. Defrost the strawberries in the microwave, keeping the juice that releases as they thaw (optional if using frozen). Stir together with the fresh berries, 1 teaspoon maple syrup, and 1 pinch cinnamon.
  3. In each glass, layer ½ cup yogurt, a sprinkle berries and granola, ½ cup yogurt, and another sprinkle berries and granola. Serve immediately. Make ahead instructions: You can also store for up to 4 days, but the granola becomes soggy. If you’re making for make ahead breakfasts, layer it without the granola and add it right before serving.


*Defrosting the frozen berries helps to make a juicy sauce for all of the berries. But substitute fresh strawberries if you like!
