Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • The night before (or up to three days ahead), make yogurt cheese: Place two paper cone coffee filters over two large mugs or small bowls. Put 2 cups of yogurt into each filter and place both in the refrigerator overnight. The liquid will drain out, leaving approximately 1 cup of thick yogurt cheese in each. Discard the liquid.

  • Combine ½ cup of the yogurt cheese, honey, and vanilla in a bowl. Mix thoroughly with a whisk. Add the remaining yogurt cheese and mix until combined.

  • In each of four parfait glasses or large wineglasses, alternate layers of yogurt cheese and berries, starting and ending with yogurt cheese. Serve immediately, or cover and chill up to 4 hours. Before serving, garnish each parfait with 2 gingersnap cookies.

Tips

If you're not a fan of blackberries or can't find them at your local grocery store, use raspberries or strawberries instead.
