Strained Yogurt Parfait

This breakfast could also make a light dessert. It’s creamy and sweet, and elegant. Sweetened with maple syrup and fresh berries, it’s just indulgent enough. Topped with a spring of mint makes it feel, and look, like a treat.

The key is the way that the yogurt is prepared. Since we don’t want to use a cow’s milk so we don’t inflame our skin, we’re going to make a greek style yogurt from sheep or goat yogurt. To make the base thicker, you strain it over a cheese cloth for a few hours so that it gets super creamy. It’s also lower in lactose and has more protein. You can also use a dairy-free option like coconut yogurt if you want to go 100% lactose free.

When you prepare this dish, take your time to make it look beautiful. Even if you’re just making it for yourself.
