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.
