Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 1 dozen parfaits

Ingredients

  • 1 sleeve (10 full sheets) graham crackers, crushed
  • 1/2 cup (100 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup ( grams) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup ( grams) all-purpose flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 cups (500 ml) heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup (50 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups ( grams) Greek yogurt
  • 1 lb (455 grams) fresh strawberries, sliced

Directions

    To Make Graham Cracker Crumble:
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Spread out evenly on a sheet pan and bake until lightly golden brown, 10 minutes.
  3. Let cool completely, then break up into chunks.
  4. To Make Yogurt Whipping Cream:
  5. With an electric mixer, beat whipping cream until it starts to thicken.
  6. Add sugar while continuing to beat, followed by vanilla. Beat to medium peaks.
  7. Fold in Greek yogurt in 2 additions.
  8. To Assemble:
  9. Layer graham cracker crumble, yogurt whipped cream, and sliced strawberries into small jars or cups.
  10. Serve immediately or store in the fridge for up to 4 hours.
  11. Notes: Vanilla flavored yogurt can used in place of plain yogurt, simply omit sugar and vanilla. Any fresh fruit can be used in these parfaits, like raspberries, blueberries, peaches and cherries. To make more than 4 hours in advance, all elements can be combined and stored. Store graham cracker crumble in an airtight container for 1 week or more, store yogurt whipped cream in fridge for up to 2 days. I prefer to use fresh sliced fruit right away, but it can be stored in the fridge for up to 24 hours.
