yogurt parfait bar: super simple brunch idea

yogurt parfait station for brunch

A couple weeks ago I threw a brunch baby shower for a dear friend and we made a yogurt parfait bar. It was SO simple to put together and all the guests loved it. We pre-filled mini mason jars with the yogurt custard (recipe below) the night before which made it super easy to assemble in the morning. The mason jars also made it convenient for guests to add toppings, put the lid back on the jar and take it with them to their seat. Doing a bit extra to make the yogurt extra tasty was also very appreciated.

Yogurt Custard Parfaits:

For the yogurt
4 cups plain greek yogurt
2 TBS honey (optional)
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups whole milk or cream
1 packet instant vanilla pudding

Topping ideas:
granola
fresh berries
chocolate pieces
coconut
honey
nuts

Directions:
Whisk all ingredients together in a mixer on high for 2-3 minutes or until it begins to thicken. Divide evenly into 12 mason jars (it should not fill the mason jars- leave room for every person to add their own toppings). Put the toppings into bowls or crates and serve along side the mason jars.

Ummm, I sort of wish the lovely Ann had never introduced me to the gloriously delicious confection that is Creme Brulee Croissant French Toast. Sort of. But then, had she not, I would’ve missed out on what may be the world’s most delicious brunch dish (and about 1000 calories, but that’s besides the point). And, […]
