I’ve been checking out the red berries, strawberry and raspberry, in the market over the last few weeks. There is that one moment during the season where they go from “not ready” to I want to buy every container because the scent and flavor are just perfect. Well, I think that time is here; at least in ATX. The strawberries smell so good and their fruity perfume catches you as you walk by the display. The raspberries are plump and super sweet, not too tart; and just the way I like them. So this “parfait” is a little ode to my red berry passion. Enjoy!
2C of Greek Yogurt - Vanilla (or your favorite flavor)
1C of Raspberries
4 large strawberries, sliced in half (w/stem) + 1 large strawberry cut in circles 1/8” thick
4 - 1/2tsp of candied ginger, minced
In a 3”x3” ramekin place yogurt in one half of it. In the other half gently arrange berries so they butt up against the yogurt and side of the yogurt. Get creative you can arrange in any way you like.
Garnish the yogurt with candied ginger. Serve immediately. Great for a Valentine’s day treat, snack, dessert or breakfast.
Yields 4 portions.
