This yogurt parfait features delicious layers of vanilla bean Wallaby Organic Aussie Style yogurt, flavorful fruit and crunchy granola. It has a lovely taste and is such a treat to have at breakfast or for dessert.
When I discovered the opportunity to write a blog post about Wallaby Organic Yogurt, I was beyond thrilled. I’ve been eating their yogurt for years! The owners of Wallaby yogurt started their company way back in 1996 (you can read about their product and methods here) and I can safely say I’ve been eating it just about every day for more than 10 years.
That’s how much I love it. You will find it has a taste that is uniquely mellow among yogurts.
Wallaby organic yogurt rocks my world
Here are some of the reasons why:
- It is organic and Christopher and I eat organic whenever possible.
- I’ve never tasted such a delicious yogurt and the vanilla bean Greek yogurt is so creamy that Christopher is borderline addicted to it. Okay so am I. In fact, I’m straddling the line, but I can stop any time I want to. I just don’t want to.
- You can tell just by tasting the Wallaby brand that they take a slower, more mindful approach making their delicious yogurt and kefir. It’s like love in a cup. 🙂
- Their process of slow culturing, which takes twice as long using an Australian-inspired organic recipe, leaves the yogurt tart free with a texture that feels almost whipped.
Here is a photo of all the Wallaby Organic Aussie Style products I found at my local Whole Foods, a perfect place to buy them.
I got 3, 5.3 ounce tubs of the Wallaby Organic Aussie Greek yogurt in three different flavors. The strawberry and raspberry (whole milk) are pre-mixed but the peach (nonfat) has a little side pocket of peachy goodness! Drool.
As for their kefir…
Wallaby organic kefir
Over the years, I have tasted my fair share of kefirs, but when I noticed Wallaby had an organic Aussie style kefir (it comes in whole milk and lowfat flavors), I exclaimed out loud in the store, causing a few furtive glances to be directed my way.
For this post, I chose vanilla (which I’ve tasted before) and mango, which was new to me.
Oh. My. God.
I screeched for Christopher to come try the mango kefir. But before he did, I needed a few pour shots.
Look at how thick and rich that is!! It’s super creamy and mild, with none of that slight tang you typically taste in kefir. Christopher loved it too! (The mango could be my new favorite, but don’t tell vanilla.)
For this yogurt parfait recipe, I decided to use the vanilla bean Aussie Greek yogurt.
- Use organic fruit and granola whenever you can because there is a taste difference.
- That said, always wash fruit thoroughly, even organic fruit.
- I find two layers of all the ingredients is a healthy amount, but you could do this parfait in three layers if you keep the layers thinner.
- Use a granola that won’t be overpowering, such as vanilla chocolate chip (pictured).
- Use a nice glass to house the yogurt parfait since we eat with our eyes as well as our mouths.
- You can use any combination of fruit but I like to use contrasting colors.
Let’s get started.
Gather the ingredients – strawberries, cherries, Wallaby Organic Aussie Style Greek vanilla bean yogurt and granola. (1)
Dollop yogurt in the bottom of the glasses. (2)
Add the pitted and halved cherries on top of the yogurt and sliced strawberries on top of the cherries. (3)
Sprinkle granola on fruit. (1-below)
Layer of yogurt on granola. (2-above)
Add another fruit layer. (3-above)
All that is left to these yogurt parfaits is to sprinkle more granola on top.
I hope you enjoyed this yogurt parfait recipe! Do yourself a flavor and try the Wallaby Organic Greek Yogurt and Kefir. You won’t be disappointed. You’ll be thanking me for introducing you to this awesome brand.
