“A twist on a yogurt parfait featuring tropical fruits and a little bit of crunch from a homemade granola! You could prep the syrup and granola the night before for quicker morning preparation – just store the syrup in the fridge and the granola in a sealed container. This makes a nice presentation when served in a clear cup to reveal the layers – individual trifle bowls work great.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Gently remove the halved grapefruit pieces from the skin and place in a medium bowl. Combine with avocado.
  2. Prepare pomegranate syrup: Combine sugar and corn starch in a small saucepan, and mix well. Add pomegranate juice. Bring to a boil and simmer gently until reduced and thickened, about 5 minutes. Allow to cool.
  3. Prepare granola crumble: Preheat oven to 325°F Combine oats, butter, brown sugar, allspice, and almonds, and toss. Spread oat mixture on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Bake until light brown, about 10 minutes. Stir in coconut and return to oven until mixture is medium brown, about another 5 minutes.
  4. To make parfaits, layer yogurt in individual dishes, followed by a layer of fruit, then a drizzle of pomegranate syrup, topped with granola crumble. Add another layer of yogurt, fruit, then syrup drizzle, and finish with the granola crumble. Enjoy!
  5. Note: If your grapefruit is particularly tart, you can sprinkle a bit of sugar, to taste, on the fruit mixture before layering it into the parfait.
