Ingredients

Grain

  • 1 oz granola see notes for making your own

Protein

  • 1 cup plant-based yogurt

Fruit

  • 2 cups blackberries or however much you want to use
  • handful blackberries for topping

Instructions

Simple Jam

  • Put the blackberries in a small saucepan, mash a bit with a fork or potato masher, and simmer over medium-low heat for 10 minutes. That's it! Refrigerate for later use. It will firm up if left overnight in the fridge.

Assemble the Parfait

  • Add about half of the yogurt into a small bowl and mix a spoonful of jam into it, mostly just for the pretty color.
  • Layer the pretty yogurt, jam, regular yogurt, granola, and berries in a glass jar or cup.
  • Admire, and enjoy!

Notes

  • I like to make a big batch of blackberry jam at a time, but because there are no sugar or preservatives added, it should not be canned using traditional methods. It does freeze well though! I usually make more than I can eat and freeze it in small jars with about 1/2 inch of room left at the top to allow for expansion.
