Guess who popped in for breakfast this morning.
Hint, his last name is berry and it’s been a LONG, LONG winter since he was on sale like this. We couldn’t resist ourselves – I’ve been grabbing up berries like they are going out of business and I am not sorry one bit about it, sorry folks who don’t have berries just yet. You are welcome over to our house to share anytime!
As soon as I saw these plump, juicy berries I knew immediately what I wanted to do with them. Surround them with vanilla, and crisp granola … and perhaps a hint of lemon curd. Oh yes, I said lemon curd.
I’ve never had a parfait like this before, and trust me when I say we will be eating them again tomorrow .. and the next day, and maybe even the next day … as long as there are berries in the fridge.
See all that tasty goodness, I just couldn’t help my self.
I’ll give you a tip — you’ll want to choose a yogurt base with a low sugar content (15 grams or less), there’s plenty of sweetness in here to go around already .. . and you only need a touch of lemon curd.
A little goes a long way, in fact, you may want to mix just the tip of a teaspoon’s worth into a layer of 2 tablespoons worth of yogurt and mix until you get your desired level of lemony-ness. (

Lemon curd can be a strong flavor, be sure to taste your lemon / yogurt mixture before you add it in to get it to your liking.
