Here is a fresh, easy dessert using the best of what summer has to offer – berries!



Makes 4 servings



  • 1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 2 (3.5-ounce) containers fat-free vanilla pudding
  • 2 tablespoons bottled lemon curd
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 3 cups mixed berries



  1. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the yogurt, pudding, lemon curd and vanilla extract; set aside.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, stir the honey and lemon zest until combined. Add the mixed berries, and gently stir with a rubber spatula to coat them with the honey mixture.
  3. Assemble the parfaits in four 8-ounce glasses. Using measuring spoons, scoop 3 tablespoons of the yogurt mixture into each glass. Top with 1/4 cup of the berries, then another 3 tablespoons yogurt, and another 1/4 cup berries. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours. Makes 4 servings.
