There appears to be a slight misconception out there among my friends and associates that Mama only indulges in things likes cakes and cookies and all things made from sugar, butter and eggs. And though that may be true to some extent, it should be noted that I am a devotee of fresh fruit and vegetables. And, that the combination of tart yogurt and fresh fruit is probably one my all-time favorite breakfast combos.
For Mother’s Day I have invited an array of mother’s to my home for a brunch, and I plan to start the festivities off with Tropical Yogurt Parfait Shooters. It’s a fresh and light way to start off the meal, and I think it will appeal to everyone. These parfaits combine organic yogurt sweetened with a little honey, with fresh cut pineapple and kiwi, a smooth mango puree and are topped with some toasted coconut for an added crunch.
Tropical Yogurt Parfait
Makes 8 mini parfait shooters or 4 larger yogurt parfaits
You can prep all your ingredients in advance, and then assemble just before you’re ready to serve the parfaits.
