A 'perfect' combination of fresh fruit, creamy yogurt, crunchy granola and a toping of smooth dark mint chocolate. That's what we call 'parfait'.
It's no wonder the word 'parfait' means 'perfect' in French. Because that's what this is... absolutely perfect. A simple homemade strawberry jam brings this recipe to life made with either fresh or frozen berries.
Layered with your favorite yogurt of choice; greek, coconut, soy, almond (the options are endless these days) and store bought or homemade granola, topped with a square of Verse Mint chocolate. This jarful of delish can be enjoyed as a morning nutrient-packed breakfast or as a sweet way to wrap up the day. It's even good enough for dinner guests.
Don't forget to dig your spoon all the way down to get a bit of each layer in every bite.

Total Time35 Minutes
- Yogurt of choice; Greek, coconut, almond, etc.
- Granola of choice
- Frozen Wild Blueberries
- Verse Chocolate Mint Medallions
- 4 cups fresh or frozen strawberries, hulled if fresh
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar or granulated sugar alternative

1. Place strawberries, sugar, lemon juice, zest, and salt in a medium pot.
2. Bring to a rapid boil over medium heat.
3. Stir occasionally, breaking up and mashing the strawberries as you go.
4. At about 25 minutes, check consistency by dipping a spoon into the pot, pull it out and
run your finger along the back - looking for a clear path! You can also run your spatula
across the bottom of your bottom looking for a clear path too!
5. Pour preserves into a glass jar and let cool to room temperature. Store in the fridge for
up to 3 months.
6. Build your parfaits. Layer a big spoonful of cooled strawberry jam, and then add a
layer of granola. Top with your desired amount of yogurt, and then a handful of
blueberries. Finish off with another layer of granola and a Verse Chocolate Mint
7. Dig your spoon all the way to the bottom to get every layer in every bite!
