It’s been fun reading responses people have shared on the Five-Year Anniversary post, and there have been more than a few of you asking for more low-sugar desserts, so this Low-Sugar Blueberry Yogurt Parfait I came up with recently seemed like a good post for today. I served this as a dessert, but it could also be the type of dish you’d serve at a brunch, especially if you made a larger version in a single dish. I’m not someone who cares a lot about desserts, so if I’m going to make a dessert it will be a simple dish like this that can be made in a few minutes, and this was easy to make with lots of flavor.

For two servings, you need 1/2 – 1 cup blueberries. I used frozen blueberries, which I let thaw before using. (I think this would also taste pretty good made with regular agave as well.) If you’ve been reading some of the warnings about certain brands of agave nectar, here is why I think my brand of agave nectar is safe and information about some of the myths concerning agave nectar.

I used a mixture of fat-free Greek yogurt and low-carb vanilla yogurt. You can use all Greek yogurt or all vanilla too, depending on how much you like the slightly-sour flavor of Greek yogurt. Mix the two kinds of yogurt together well, so there are no lumps.

In a parfait glass, layer 1/4 the yogurt mixture, 1-2 T blueberries and 1 T blueberry agave nectar (or slightly less if you want it a little less sweet.) Then put another layer of the yogurt mixture, more blueberries, and another Tablespoon (or a bit less) of the blueberry agave nectar. That’s all there is to it. The amounts can be varied to taste, just don’t skip the layering.

Low-Sugar Blueberry Yogurt Parfait

Low-Sugar Blueberry Yogurt Parfait is delicious when you want a dessert that’s just a little sweet.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 – 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (thaw if frozen)
  • 4 T blueberry agave nectar or plain agave nectar, which will make it a little less pretty (or less if you’d like it a little less sweet)
  • 1 container (6 oz.) Greek yogurt
  • 1 container (6 oz.) low-carb or low-sugar vanilla yogurt

Directions:

  1. Mix the fat-free Greek yogurt and the low-carb vanilla yogurt until there are no lumps.
  2. In parfait glasses, make a layer with 1/4 the yogurt mixture.
  3. Next put 1-2 T blueberries, then drizzle over about 1 T blueberry agave.
  4. Repeat with another layer of the yogurt mixture, blueberries, and blueberry agave nectar.
  5. This will keep for a few hours, but it’s best served right away.

Notes:

This recipe can easily be doubled.

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
Since it has fruit and agave nectar, this recipe would be phase 2 or 3 for the South Beach Diet. It’s too high in carbs for low-carb diet plans.

  1. Can I have two of them, right now, please?! This idea would work with practically any berry. Great idea, thank you!

  2. This looks wonderful, Kalyn. My kind of dessert!

  3. These are so pretty! I love how the blueberry syrup/juice seeps into the layer of yogurt. Wonderful for a dessert or brunch treat.

  4. You make low sugar desserts look so delicious. These parfaits would be such a treat to wake up to or to have as a snack.

  5. I have loved blueberry yogurt since I was a child. Something about that deep blue gets me every time. This will be fun to make!

  6. The photos look fabulous and they draw you right in. I love simple desserts like this. I don't have a lot of experience with Agave but I do have some in my cupboard and now I have a recipe to try it out with!

  7. This is my kind of dessert, too. I'm not much of a dessert eater and even less of a dessert maker, so when I do make desserts, they need to be foolproof and fruit-based. I'm definitely trying this with raspberries, which I always have in the freezer.

  8. What a nice dessert, Kalyn!

    Funny, I usually like to have a very small bowl of yogurt, some blueberries on top, and a light drizzle of agave nectar (I love the stuff!) late at night. But never thought of going one step further and building a real dessert out of it.

    Loved it!

  9. It looks great. I find that you can also add 2 tbs of chocolate flavored natural whey protein to greek yogurt as a low sugar sweetener.

  10. That looks really delicious. I didn't know you could get different flavours of agave or that there was a problem with certain brands, must do some reading 🙂

  11. mmm what a simple but yummy idea!! i'll have to try this!
    love your banner!

  12. I have blackberries at home, I'm totally having this for dessert after dinner tonight. thank you!

  13. This is beautiful, easy, healthy, and sophisticated: exactly the kind of dessert I want to be making right now!
    This must be a popular kind of dessert right now. I just read Martha Stewart's Dinner at Home, and she has two desserts like this: Greek Yogurt with Clementines and Pistachios (Greek yogurt in old fashioned glasses topped with unsweetened orange segments and chopped nuts, p.37 Spring Menus) and Papaya with Coconut-Lime Yogurt (toasted coconut, Greek yogurt, honey, lime juice, served as sauce for freseh papapya slices, p. 157 Fall menus).adisha

  14. Gorgeous photos. We make our own yogurt at home and I love making yogurt parfaits for breakfast or dessert. I want to try the blueberry agave. Looks wonderful.
