Yogurt Mango Parfait

This flavourful and exceptionally easy dessert calls for pressed yogurt, which you can buy at specialty stores but is also easy to make. To do so, place yogurt in a cheesecloth-lined sieve over a bowl and refrigerate for 12 hours, then discard the liquid in the bowl and use the compressed yogurt for dabbing on to desserts instead of whipped cream or in dips to replace mayonnaise.

I like to serve a few pieces of dark chocolate with the parfait for extra antioxidants.


  • 1 cup pressed yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 large mango, puréed
  • Grated rind and juice of one lime
  • 1/2 cup sliced roasted almonds


Combine yogurt, sugar, mango and lime rind and juice. Spoon into bowl and scatter almonds over top. Serves 4.
