Succulent Berry Parfait

Blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries have incredibly high antioxidant capacities—and they’re delicious, to boot. This Succulent Ripe Berry Parfait recipe will make your RealAge 8.4 days younger.
Preparation Time:  15 minutes
Cooking Time:  0 minutes
Servings  4
Serving Size:


24 ounces low-fat soy vanilla yogurt, such as White Wave brand
4 teaspoons honey
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup quartered, hulled strawberries
1 cup raspberries
1 cup blueberries
1 cup diced honeydew melon
½ cup “Grape-Nuts® (or similar) cereal


In a medium bowl, combine yogurt, honey, and vanilla; mix well. In four large goblets or clear dessert dishes, arrange fruit and yogurt mixture in four layers. Top with grape nuts.


Look for especially juicy melon—its ripeness will help sweeten the dish. The crunch of the grape nuts is a chef’s way to keep you interested: The rough texture contrasts with the smoothness of the yogurt and the firm flesh of the fruit to make your mouth go, “Wow!” Keep the melon diced medium: It’s easier to eat small chunks rather than big ones, and the melon will go further. This dish has summer written all over it due to its berries and melons.


Low-fat vanilla yogurt may replace the soy yogurt, blackberries may replace the blueberries, and cantaloupe may replace the honeydew melon.
