Raspberry and Blueberry Parfait of whipped cream and Greek yogurt

Berries in a Cloud

This is one of my go-to dishes for dinner parties and gatherings. As such, the dessert serves eight. If you are cooking for a smaller crowd, feel free to cut the recipe in half.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup low- or non-fat Greek-style yogurt
  • 1/2 cup gently packed brown sugar or white sugar (use white sugar for themed July 4 desserts)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 5 cups berries , if using strawberries, cut them to the size of a blackberry

Instructions

  1. Pour the whipping cream into a medium bowl and beat with a whisk or electric beaters until soft peaks form.
  2. Put the yogurt, brown sugar and vanilla in a separate medium bowl and whisk vigorously until the ingredients are combined and the yogurt is silky smooth. Spoon the whipped cream on top of the yogurt and use a rubber spatula to gently fold the cream into the yogurt until the ingredients are one consistency, trying your best not to deflate the cream.
  3. Divide the cream into eight glasses and top with berries. Alternatively, put half the berries in the bottom of 8 glasses, spoon the cream on top, and top with remaining berries. Serve immediately.
