Fresh Peach and Blueberry Yogurt Parfait is a fun way to use peaches when they’re in season. And this relatively low-sugar treat is also gluten-free, meatless, and kid-friendly. Use Fruit Recipes to find more recipes like this one.
It only takes a quick look at the sections for Fruit and Vegetables in my recipe index to tell that I’m a veggie lover and always will be. But even though savory flavors are my favorites, there are a few fruits I absolutely love, and fresh peaches are up near the top of that list. When the Utah peaches are in season I can’t get enough of them! But you can’t eat peach desserts every day, even when they’re healthy ones (like my Slow Cooker Low-Sugar and Gluten-Free Peach Crisp.)
When I do have a lot of peaches, this Fresh Peach and Blueberry Yogurt Parfait Recipe with chopped fresh peaches, low-carb vanilla yogurt, and blueberries is one of my favorite ways to eat them. Greek yogurt would also be good here for a version with even less sugar, and if you don’t want to splurge for blueberries (which aren’t really in season right now), use some low-sugar granola to go with the peaches for a different flavor combination.
I made this a few times the last couple of weeks before I had the thought to take some photos and share the idea with you. And although is so easy you don’t really need a recipe, I hope this will inspire you to try something like this with other fruits. I think the possible combinations are endless!
For the parfait shown in the photo (which could easily be two servings) I used one large peach, peeled and cut into pieces, a generous 1/4 cup of blueberries, and one 6 oz. container of vanilla-flavored Kroger CARBmaster Yogurt. (This yogurt has only 3 grams of sugar per container but it does contain Splenda. If you don’t want a yogurt with artificial sweetener, I’d use plain Fat Free Greek Yogurt instead.) Just layer the ingredients into a glass container, starting with fruit and ending with fruit. I think the combination of peaches and blueberries is especially tasty and pretty in this, but any type of fruit-yogurt combination will be delicious!

Fresh Peach and Blueberry Yogurt Parfait
Fresh Peach and Blueberry Yogurt Parfait is a fun way to use peaches when they’re in season.
- 1 large peach, peeled and cut into small pieces
- 1/4 cup blueberries (or more if they’re in season)
- 1 container (6 oz.) low-carb vanilla yogurt
- Peel the peach and cut it into small pieces. (If the peach skin doesn’t come off easily, dunking it for a few seconds in boiling water will make the skin come right off. This might be helpful if you’re making this for several people at once.)
- Make sure blueberries are washed, or wash and pat dry if needed.
- In 2 small glass parfait dishes or nicely-shaped drinking glasses layer fruit and yogurt, starting and ending with fruit for the most appealing presentation.
- You could make this ahead and keep in the fridge for an hour or two, but I don’t think it would last longer than that.
I use Kroger CARBmaster Yogurt, this would also be delicious with plain Greek yogurt if you prefer.
Other Variations You Might Like:
–Use plain Fat Free Greek Yogurt in place of the vanilla yogurt.
–Use other low carb fruit-flavored yogurt in place of the vanilla yogurt.
–Use a low-fat low-sugar granola or breakfast cereal in place of one of the fruits.
–Use other combinations of fruit with seasonal fruits such as strawberries, raspberries, melons, cherries, kiwi, mango, pears, grapes, or persimmons.
–Use a few tablespoons of chopped nuts to replace one of the fruits.

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
If you’re eating this Fresh Peach and Blueberry Yogurt Parfait for the South Beach Diet, it would be important to use low-carb yogurt or plain fat-free Greek yogurt to keep this as low-glycemic as possible, and obviously this is limited to Phase 2 or 3. If you’re on Phase 2 but still actively trying to lose weight, I would consider this to be two servings, and eat it with a breakfast that includes eggs or other lean proteins. This much fruit won’t work for a traditional low-carb diet.
