    Rippled cherry and Greek yoghurt parfaits with honey-roasted almonds

    Serves: 4
    Cooking Time: 40 mins



    • 480g cherries, pitted
    • 90g brown sugar
    • 180ml (¾ cup) berry juice
    • seeds of 1 vanilla pod
    • 100g whole unsalted almonds
    • 30ml (2 tbsp) honey
    • 1kg Greek yoghurt



    For the cherry coulis, place all of the ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat and allow to simmer over medium heat until thickened, 10 – 15 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely. Preheat the oven to 180°C.


    Place the almonds on a lined baking tray and drizzle over the honey. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool.


    To assemble the parfaits, add a bit of yoghurt to each glass. Drizzle some coulis on top and then a bit of yoghurt again. Continue layering it and then, lastly, scatter over the nuts.


    Turn this into a great and super-easy dessert by firstly adding some Madeira cake cubes to the bottom of the glass and then layering the yoghurt and coulis on top.
