For the yogurt cream:

  • 3/4 cup (200 grams) light cream cheese (about 11% fat, at room temperature
  • 4-5 tablespoons thyme honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • zest from 1 lime
  • 1 cup (250 grams) strained low fat Greek yogurt (2% fat)

For the rest:

  • 1 cup sugar-free granola (make sure it's gluten-free if you don't eat gluten)
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh fruit mixed
  • 1-2 tablespoons thyme honey


  1. Make the yogurt cream: Transfer the cream cheese, the honey, the cinnamon, and the lime zest to a bowl and whisk until smooth. Add the yogurt and mix until well combined. Taste and adjust sweetness.

  2. Assemble the parfaits: Add 2 tablespoons of fruit at the bottom of 4 glasses. Top with some yogurt cream and add a drizzle of honey. Continue by adding 2 tablespoons of fruit and 3 tablespoons of granola. Add the remaining yogurt cream and top with a tablespoon of granola and some fruit.

  3. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until ready to serve. Eat.

Recipe Notes

  • These yogurt parfaits are best served the first day when the granola is crunchy. After the second day the granola will absorb moisture and will get soft. You can make the yogurt cream 1-2 days in advance and loosen it up with a spoon before filling the glasses.
  • Substitute the cinnamon and the lime zest with 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract for a different flavor profile.
  • What fruit to use: raspberries, cherries, chopped mango, pineapple, grapes, peaches, blueberries, or whatever else you like!
