Tropical Fruit Greek Yogurt Parfait



Monday, the starting day of a week ! If you are following my blog posts, then you might know that I have been part of a group known as 'Foodie Monday Blog Hop' where each Monday all group members will share a post according to a theme decided before hand. This time, means the 139th theme is decided as 'Healthy Dessert'. Dessert, that too healthy - Interesting, isn't it ? 

When health is a top concern that means whether it is a dieting schedule or simply living a healthy lifestyle, desserts can seem to be an off-limits category. But not necessarily ! If you have a strong sweet tooth and also determined not to let this ruin your healthy lifestyle, then there are several ways to satisfy the sweet tooth without disturbing the health goals.



All those healthy sweet treats are obviously healthier than their traditional counterparts. Mainly these are nutritionally boosted with many super foods like Greek yogurt, chia seeds, berries, flax seeds and many more. Well here I have come up with such a healthy dessert using some tropical fruits known as Tropical Fruit Yogurt Parfait. Parfait is usually served frozen but this one can also be eaten as it is.





Greek yogurt, the thicker and creamier yogurt contains probiotic cultures and is lower in lactose and has twice the protein content of regular yogurts. So this is a must if you have a healthy concern. Also some tropical fruits I have used like pineapple, kiwi, mango. Any other fruits can be used as desired. I have also added some honey to the yogurt which is optional. This parfait is so simple, easy and quick to assemble without involving any cooking procedure. With just 3 ingredients and within 5 minutes, the tropical fruit yogurt parfait is a perfect grab-n-go jar loaded with so much healthier nutrients. So do try this tropical fruit yogurt parfait and give your valuable feedback either in the comment box below or tag me as #firsttimercook on Instagram. Lets go in details.

  18. Why should desserts be always loaded with too much sugar when you can eat this beauty and be less guilty too. A great way to have curd (good idea to use greek yoghurt) and fruits. Perfect treat for adults and kids both during summers.
