Getting Healthy from the Inside Out

Raspberry Parfait

Our only complaints about this dish was not enough! Light and delicious, it felt like it was gone in 2 spoonfuls! Adding a few raspberries at the very bottom of the dish would help “bulk” it up a bit! Perfect kid size of people with dietary issues (like diabetes) and could be made less sweet and more tart by removing or reducing the sugar!

  • 1 3/4 cups Raspberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 3 tbsp Sugar
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 2 tsp orange juice
  • 1 1/3 cup fat free greek yogurt

Press Raspberries through a strainer and discard seeds and pulp. In a small saucepan, combine the cornstarch and sugar; stir in raspberry puree. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Refrigerate until chilled.

Divide raspberry mixture in half. Stir in orange juice in one portion and set aside. Place remaining raspberry puree in a small bowl. Stir in Greek yogurt.

Divide into serving dishes and drizzle with raspberry/orange sauce. Top with extra raspberries.
