Did you know that today is National Strawberry Parfait Day? I wouldn't have known either if Shari's Berries wouldn't have brought this holiday in my attention a couple of weeks ago. So how else to celebrate it if not making one of the best strawberry parfaits ever.
This is an easy way of making a delicious strawberry parfait, simply using ingredients you already have in house, yogurt, honey, cookies and cornflakes for crunchiness and of course...fresh strawberries. The crunchy cornflakes complements so well the smooth creamy yogurt and fresh strawberries.
The reason I made this parfait with yogurt and honey instead of cream and sugar was to reduce the content of fat and sugar and make a healthy parfait that everyone will enjoy.
You can also add some chopped fresh mint or basil in combination with strawberries for extra flavor. It's up to you.
Serve this parfait as a delicious breakfast or even as a refreshing summer dessert. Enjoy!
