Ingredients:

For the Blueberry Compote:

  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch (optional, for thickening)

For the Parfait Layers:

  • 1 cup Greek yogurt (or your preferred yogurt)
  • 1/2 cup granola
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries

Optional Toppings:

  • Honey or maple syrup for drizzling

Instructions:

1. Prepare the Blueberry Compote:

  • In a small saucepan, combine the fresh blueberries, granulated sugar, water, and lemon juice.
  • Stir well and bring the mixture to a simmer over medium-low heat.
  • Cook for about 5-7 minutes, or until the blueberries have softened and the mixture thickens.
  • If you prefer a thicker compote, you can mix the cornstarch with a tablespoon of water to create a slurry and add it to the simmering mixture.
  • Remove the saucepan from heat and let the compote cool.

2. Assemble the Parfait Layers:

  • In two serving glasses or bowls, start by adding a layer of yogurt at the bottom (approximately 1/4 cup per serving).
  • Next, add a layer of granola (about 1/4 cup).
  • Top the granola with a spoonful of the blueberry compote (about 2 tablespoons).
  • Add a layer of fresh blueberries (about 1/4 cup).
  • Repeat these layers one more time to create a second set of yogurt, granola, compote, and blueberries.

3. Optional Toppings:

  • Drizzle a bit of honey or maple syrup over the top of each parfait for extra sweetness.
  • Sprinkle chopped nuts like almonds, walnuts, or pecans for an added crunch.

4. Serve and Enjoy:

  • Your Blueberry and Granola Parfait is ready to be enjoyed! Serve it immediately or refrigerate for a chilled treat.
