Preserved Fruit Parfaits
It doesn’t get much easier than this. Fruit, yogurt, and nuts are basic ingredients, yes. But together, they meld into a simply delightful dessert, these preserved fruit parfaits.
- ½ cup slivered almonds (or other favorite nuts)
- 1 cup fruit preserves (strawberry, raspberry, cherry, blueberry, peach, apricot, or combine to use up)
- 2 cups plain unsweetened yogurt
Toast almonds in a skillet on medium low until they are slightly golden and set aside. Heat jam gently in a microwave or on stove top until just warmed. Place ½ cup yogurt in each of 4 dessert bowls and pour ¼ cup jam over each bowl of yogurt. Top each with a sprinkling of slivered almonds and serve.
