Blueberry & Almond Yogurt Parfait

The local grocery stores have had great sales on fresh blueberries for the past few weeks.  Really, really good sales on deliciously perfect blueberries.  Eating them fresh and by the handful is always an option, but sometimes it’s nice to come up with different ways to use them.

This yogurt parfait is incredibly simple, easy to make ahead of time for a quick weekday breakfast, and it’s delicious.

Blueberry & Almond Yogurt Parfait:

1 cup vanilla yogurt
½ cup washed blueberries, divided
1 Tbsp sliced almonds, toasted*

Spread 1/4 cup of the blueberries in the bottom of a bowl.  Layer the yogurt on top.  Top with remaining 1/4 cup blueberries.  Sprinkle with almonds.  Enjoy!

If you’re making this the night before, just don’t add the almonds so they don’t get soggy.  Cover and refrigerate after the final layer of blueberries.

*To toast the almonds:
Preheat a small non-stick skillet over medium heat.  Add almonds, stirring constantly, for 2 - 4 minutes, just until they barely begin to darken.  It takes about two seconds for the almonds to go from not quite toasted to burnt to a crisp.  You don’t want to step, or look, away from them.


  1. Oh...yummy. Looks great. You stated that you thought maybe the plywood for a project I had started on was for my nieces new place....nope, actually for her mom. I drew out the pattern on the plywood and I started painting it last night. Not really happy with the colors so I am off to the store to get different colors. Stay tuned.

  2. Just love the blueberry season. Thanks for the idea!

  3. Hey Danielle,

    That's the sort of healthy recipe I love. Blueberries are so good for us.

  6. We love yogurt, we love blueberries, we love nuts ... looks like we have a winning recipe here. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Oh, this is much more my thing than the kale! I'll have to give this one a try (it's Michigan blueberry season!)
