Absolutely delicious. I subtracted 1 tablespoon of the nut butter for my family’s palate 😆.

Christina Kuzeva - Dec. 1, 2023, 6:53 p.m.

This was super easy and delicious 😋

Scrumptious! The PUL kitchen never disappoints. I love your videos!

Alexis O - Oct. 16, 2023, 5:02 p.m.

Really delicious. As is my habit, I substituted almond butter for the cashew butter and it worked great. I want to make this again but swap in lime zest and top with blueberries.

This treat is a perfect blend of sweet and tangy, with the lemon flavor shining through beautifully. It's incredibly refreshing, making it a fantastic choice for those hot summer days. And the best part? You can whip it up in just 5 minutes! It's a quick and delightful way to satisfy your cravings.

plus i used agave syrup it was perfect

PUL Team - Aug. 31, 2023, 10:30 p.m.

Yay we're so happy the lemon yogurt parfait was enjoyed, Konstantina, thank you!

Charity-Angelique Belz - Aug. 28, 2023, 3:46 p.m.

Used date syrup instead of maple syrup and the result was super yummy!

mel - Aug. 26, 2023, 8:06 p.m.

Easy to make and so yummy

Aisyah - Aug. 5, 2023, 7:21 a.m.

I made this and it’s sooooo delicious 🤤 😘😍

Pankaj - Aug. 2, 2023, 12:31 p.m.

Thanks and I love all recipes ❤️

fel - July 12, 2023, 8:59 a.m.

Made this for my bf and I. Quick and easy snack. Very delicious.

Nazia A - July 10, 2023, 3:11 p.m.

Tried this with Siggi’s plant based coconut yogurt and a plant based chocolate chip cookie. Turned out so good! I think I put too much lemon zest but it tasted like key lime pie! 😆I’m not much of a yogurt person but this is certainly something I will keep making!

PUL Team - July 13, 2023, 2:43 a.m.

Woohoo! As a fan of key lime pie that sounds lovely, Nazia 😜

Pri - July 2, 2023, 2:36 a.m.

Super tasty and filling snack! I love the addition of the digestive biscuit the most.

Ajda Urbas - April 4, 2023, 8:19 p.m.

It is THE deliciousest (i know it is not a word but it is beyond delicious) breakfast or snack. Easy, tasty, fresh, and it has my favorite ingredients in it. Sooooo yummy 😋 this week’s top for me…

PUL Team - April 4, 2023, 9 p.m.

Awe thank you so much, Ajda - we're so thrilled to hear 😃

Razaz - Aug. 27, 2022, 11:05 p.m.

Mmm delicious!

Angela - March 5, 2022, 3:06 a.m.

I’ve made this 3 times already it is so delicious, and a big hit in my household. One time I had to substitute almond butter due to a grocery order error but it was still great! Has anyone tried this frozen? I feel like it would make a good popsicle.
Thanks for all your recipes, we have a large number in our regular rotation :-)

PUL Team - March 5, 2022, 7:16 p.m.

Hey Angela! We're so glad the recipe was enjoyed even with almond butter. We haven't tested out freezing this one but that's a lovely idea 😍 It will probably help to add some liquid, such as unsweetened plant-milk, to help thin out the yogurt mixture so it fits into popsicle moulds better. Do let us know how it goes if you test it out!

Stephanie - Feb. 22, 2022, 4:47 a.m.

This is soo delicious with any variations you choose! 5 stars!!! The lemon zest adds a great punch of goodness!

PUL Team - Feb. 22, 2022, 5:05 a.m.

Oh - so lovely, Stephanie! Thank you 🥰

Tapsri - Feb. 19, 2022, 8:02 a.m.

Looks yum. Shall definitely try this today. I wanted to know if you have ever tried making black rice yoghurt.

PUL Team - Feb. 19, 2022, 8:38 p.m.

Hey Tapsri, we haven't yet although will note it down as an idea for future PUL content! In case you're interested and haven't already seen, we have a recipe for Afghan Rice Pudding here:…

Holly D. - Jan. 12, 2022, 2:18 a.m.

Just made this for dessert - so tasty!

alice - Dec. 17, 2021, 5:51 p.m.

Wait. You didn add ANY fresh lemon juice ?! I think you made a mistake ;))
looks delicious though, and i'm eating this domani mattina !

PUL Team - Dec. 20, 2021, 9:26 p.m.

Hi Alice! Indeed it's just the fresh lemon zest in this one, although feel free to add lemon juice or more zest if desired for a stronger lemon flavour. We hope you enjoy the parfait 🙂

Alice - May 28, 2022, 2:13 p.m.

Me again;))
HAD to leave another comment- as this is literally my breakfast ( with one of Your granolas!) line 4 times a week.
I ALWAYS add some fresh ( or from the bottle) lemon juice though:)
It’s so deliscuous, versatile!!
So maybe some inspirations for people reading this- for my nut-allergic friend I replaced cashews with orange- was delicious.
Sometimes I’d add banan if I’m hungry. Or half courgette ;) or Kiwi!
I alternate nuts to have different vitamins and almost always add some chia.
I sometimes use honey or different organic cookies; it’s a gem this one, I wouldn’t have thought of mixing those stuff if it weren’t for you!!
So I love you continuously!
Big hugs from Paris !

PUL Team - May 28, 2022, 11:05 p.m.

Thanks for sharing all of the ideas and insight, Alice! It means so much the recipe is being enjoyed. Sending an abundance of love back to Paris 🤗

Lavanya - Nov. 16, 2021, 5:24 p.m.

This yogurt mixture and parfait were so delicious! Thank you for creating these amazing recipes and sharing with the world :)

PUL Team - Nov. 17, 2021, 1:55 a.m.

Thank you, Lavanya, for the kinds words! It means so much that PUL recipes are being enjoyed 😃

Louise Magnusson🇸🇪 - Sept. 7, 2021, 10:26 a.m.

Wow, what a fluffy treat! I didn’t expect it to be so light, as the creamy cashew butter is rather heavy. I used Oatly’s Turkish yoghurt with 10% fat, which turned out to be a good option. It has a better consistency than a liquid coconut yogurt and it doesn’t have the bitter/strange background taste as soy-based products.
I loved this mousse on its own, but it’s amazing when combined with something crunchy. So far, I’ve eaten it with PUL Healthiest ever granola and blackcurrant for afternoon fika. It’s wonderful☺️🥲. I can imagine that this fresh and mild mousse would fit well as a topping for sponge or carrot cakes. Maybe not for chocolate desserts, it’d be too much…

PUL Team - Sept. 8, 2021, 5:55 p.m.

Aw this means so much, Louise! So lovely to hear about your experience with this one. Using it as a topping for sponge or carrot cake is a very interesting idea 😃

Vanshika - Aug. 30, 2021, 10:37 a.m.

Love this recipe. I really enjoyed this simple and incredible parfait recipe.
Love from India Sadia 🤗

audrey - Aug. 23, 2021, 7:46 p.m.

my 2 babies loved it ! I cut the vanilla extract and the maple sugar (none for them) but the whole fruits and yaourt with a nut butter is usually a lovely treat for them :) thanks ! (3 years old and 11 months )

PUL Team - Aug. 25, 2021, 6:10 a.m.

So glad the recipe was enjoyed! Lots of love to you and your little ones, Audrey!

Annesha Das - Aug. 17, 2021, 7:30 p.m.

Hey! I am from India. My name is annesha Das. I tried to make lemon yogurt parfait just two days ago. It turned super awesome and the taste was different, like butterscotch type. My mother loved it. Since we do not get good strawberries here I garnished it with mangoes. I am a fan of ur channel..❤️❤️❤️

PUL Team - Aug. 19, 2021, 6:17 p.m.

Hi there, Annesha Das, we're so glad you and your mother enjoyed the parfait! Love that you used mangoes. Hugs to India ✨

Stacey D. - Aug. 6, 2021, 9:56 p.m.

Sadia! I love your channel! I’m curious what your favorite plant based yogurt is and/or what you used here! Yours always looks just like regular Greek dairy yogurt than what I can find in the US. Thank you so much!

PUL Team - Aug. 7, 2021, 3:03 a.m.

Hi Stacey, so glad you're enjoying the PUL content! We usually use the Alpro brand available at our local grocery store, and Albert Heijn (a grocery store here in the Netherlands) also carry their own house brand of plant-based yogurts we sometimes use as well 🤓 If you can't get your hand on Greek-style yogurt, any regular plant-based yogurt you enjoy should work well for this recipe 😊 Enjoy!

Stacey H. - Aug. 5, 2021, 3:44 p.m.

I made this in mason jars so our family could take it as a picnic on our way to our vacation spot. Everyone, from our 2 year old to my omni mom, loved them! I used granola instead of the biscuits and added some chia seeds for a nutrition boost-- delicious! I think this is my new favorite breakfast and dessert!

PUL Team - Aug. 5, 2021, 10:02 p.m.

We appreciate this so much, Stacey, so happy you're enjoying the parfait!

JayBee - Aug. 3, 2021, 10:46 p.m.

Simple, easy and tasty ! Loved it :)

Cathy Coates - July 31, 2021, 3:21 p.m.

I've never liked yogourt but am on a 'no chew' diet for 2 weeks following major dental surgery. I decided to give yogourt one more try and made just the yogourt part using peanut butter. LOVED IT! Lots of protein and it simply slid on down.

PUL Team - Aug. 1, 2021, 9:01 a.m.

So happy you're enjoying the parfait, Cathy! All the best with your recovery 💚

Hygge - July 28, 2021, 1:45 p.m.

Tastes really nice and refreshing...and it's healthy! I had it with a banana instead of berries but still lovely. Thanks for this amazing snack! xx

pranjall - July 28, 2021, 10 a.m.

This has to be, no doubt, the absolute best yogurt recipe I have ever tried. Never trying any other flavour again. THIS is perfection. I know it's such a simple and small thing but man did you create a harmonious combination. 10/10 recommend.

PUL Team - July 29, 2021, 5:58 p.m.

Such a wonderful compliment, Pranjall, thank you for the glowing review!

Priyanka - July 26, 2021, 10:54 p.m.

I enjoyed this as a snack with my mom. I didn't have the digestive biscuits. I used some granola instead, and it still turned out amazingly flavorful 😋. The orange/lemon zest adds a surprising kick of tartness to the yogurt (in a good way). Highly recommend!

PUL Team - July 28, 2021, 4:15 a.m.

So glad you enjoyed the recipe, Priyanka! 😃

Mary - July 24, 2021, 9:40 p.m.

Delicious breakfast......had ripe berries and mangoes so the yogurt parfait (topped with some granola) was a big hit. Definitely a keeper recipe.

PUL Team - July 26, 2021, 8:16 p.m.

Mmm sounds so yummy, Mary, thank you for sharing!

tiny flower - July 24, 2021, 6:40 p.m.

i just tried this recipe and i just love how accessible it is and also how easy to swap the ingredients for others that are available!! it was rly delicious and perfect for a hot sunny and thunderstorm rainy day!

Richa Sharma - July 24, 2021, 6:09 p.m.

This looks damn tempting!

Marina Milivojevic - July 23, 2021, 4:11 a.m.

Glasses used for this parfait are gorgeous! Do you mind sharing where you got them? Thanks

PUL Team - July 25, 2021, 6:45 a.m.

Hey Marina, thank you! They were a thrift store purchase 🤓
