Homemade Yoghurt and Fruit Parfait

Want a Sundae that isn’t just reserved for Sundays? I’ve got it covered. 

My kids usually have fruit and yoghurt for dessert. That’s about as exciting as it gets round here. Now everyone likes a little change now and again and this is how we keep things lively.

Some days I just chop a pile of fruit and stick in with the yoghurt, I’ll be honest, these are usually my “tired mummy” moments. On days when we need more inspiring desserts I get a pile of ingredients out for decorative dessert time.

My kids love to layer fresh fruit, yoghurt, dried fruit, nuts and granola for a “make your own sundae”. I have some stackable tubs that I fill with ingredients. They love to unpack them and make their own creation. Sometimes we do layers….

Dietitian UK: Make your own Yoghurt Parfait, perfect for children’s desserts.

Sometimes we make “yoghurt cakes” where it all gets mixed together….

Sometimes we just make a mess…. I’ll be honest, mainly we make a mess.

Great Ingredients to try this with:

Low sugar granola

Rolled Oats

Whole Almonds, walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts

Sliced/Chopped/Flaked nuts 

Sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds

Left over ends of flapjack (or is that just my house)

A selection of dried fruit (put out a couple of types and vary it each time)

Fresh fruit

Frozen fruit for that “ice-cream” feel and to have out of season fruit all year round

Homemade Banana ice cream

Dry cereal


Dessicated coconut

Stewed fruit



Do you have any other good additions? Let me know so I can add them to my list 🙂
