Alove Yogurt and Fruit Parfait

This post is sponsored by Alove in collaboration with Dent Agency. all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

Welcome to October everyone! Did you know that October was the eighth month of the year in the ancient Roman calendar? The name October was derived from the Latin word ‘octo’ which means ‘eight’. When the Romans switched to a 12th month calendar they never changed the name which we still use today. Interesting, considering it is the 10th month, right?

Before I digress into more October fun facts, let’s get to today’s recipe. Alove Yogurt Parfait layered with fruit. Yogurt parfaits are probably one of the simplest things to make and you can layer them with whatever your heart desires. They can be eaten for breakfast, dessert or just as a snack. Since I am all about eating well I love to use fruit for my layers and have started using the Alove¬†brand yogurt for my yogurt choice.

The key to a good yogurt parfait is the yogurt. You can always find yummy fruit but the yogurt is the glue that binds the parfait so to speak. You don’t want a yogurt that is too tart or too sweet and this is where Alove yogurt wins for me. Alove yogurt is aloe vera yogurt made from a mix of creamy yogurt and the inner flesh of the aloe vera leaf. This Japanese-style yogurt is the smoothest and silkiest I have ever had.

For this recipe I used pineapple chunks, strawberries, sliced kiwi and blueberries however you can use any fruit you like. I used the original flavor as I did not want the yogurt flavor to clash with the fruit. Alove comes in a variety of flavors including vanilla, strawberry, kiwi, peach and blueberry so there is something for everyone. I started off with a layer of yogurt, followed by the fruit then another layer of yogurt and fruit. This yogurt is not super thick so be prepared for the yogurt to slightly overlap with the fruit which is perfect.

As we slowly move into gloomy weather, a dish like this is a perfect breakfast sitting on the deck or even for those rushed mornings. It has become one of my favorite breakfast treats and I love how pretty it is when layered in a glass dish. I love margarita glasses or globe glasses for beautiful presentation. If you are leaning towards a dessert parfait you can use cookie crumbs, cake or brownie crumbles and graham crackers for your base layer.

Have you tried Alove yogurt? What are your favorite ingredients to use for parfaits? I would love to hear from you in the comment section below.

  1. This is definitely a great healthy treat for when you are searching for a snack. The fruits have so many vitamins and the yogurt definitely helps with calcium.

    • Thank you! I would recommend trying Alove yogurt, I enjoy it. Can you believe I go the glasses at a vintage store for less than 5 bucks. Love them.

  2. Now this is a healthier dessert for my family. I have been craving for custard flan lately and had been guilty eating for days. Now there is a better option for me.

  3. I love to try new recipe whenever I found one and trust me this is new one for me. Alove Yogurt and Fruit Parfait looks easy to make and healthy too. Thanks for sharing new breakfast recipe

  4. Parfaits are seriously so good! My husband and I love them. We’ve never tried this brand so we will need to pick it up at the store the next time we go!
