Mini Flower Pots are the Perfect Bite Sized Yogurt Parfait
I love an easy, but awesome recipe! This bite sized parfait is the perfect combination of easy, sweet, delicious and festive. OMG, they are so quick to make.
I love when a recipe makes you look F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S but really takes very little effort; my ultimate favorite combination to any recipe.
These bite sized parfaits have been a big hit over the years and are a ‘go to’ recipe when I’m entertaining. The yogurt mixture is just the right flavor blend and the shell, which is pre-made, adds just the right amount of crunch, while the fruit finishes this recipe with fresh sweetness.
Those amazing shells that keep this mixture together are found in your freezer aisle at your local supermarket, yup that’s right! All you have to do is buy them, take them out of the package, fill them and serve them. TA DA! It doesn’t get much easier than that. Oh, and the packaging says ‘zero saturated fat’ = woot!
How to make this bite sized yogurt parfait;
STEP 1: Scoop 3 oz. of your favorite low fat strawberry yogurt into a bowl.
STEP 2: Scoop 3 oz. of your favorite low fat blueberry yogurt into the same bowl.
STEP 3: Scoop 3 oz. of your favorite Greek vanilla yogurt into the same bowl.
STEP 4: Fold the ingredients together.
STEP 5: Thaw one package of frozen mini phyllo cups.
STEP 6: Wash, hull and slice the fresh strawberries.
STEP 7: Wash the fresh blueberries.
STEP 8: Lay the strawberries around the top as if they are pedals on a flower and top with a blueberry as the center of each flower. Depending on the size of the strawberry pedals, you typically only need three slices to create a flower. If the strawberries are small, you may need a fourth or fifth pedal.

- Preparing fruit
- Hulling strawberries
- Knife safety

Greek Vanilla Yogurt: This is my swap and trade for whipped cream in making any fruit dip for a yogurt parfait. It helps to thicken the mixture, but adding a bit of a better bite, depending on what you are looking for in your diet. If you don’t like it sweet, add plain Greek Yogurt, which is even better!
- 3 oz. PICS low fat strawberry yogurt
- 3 oz. PICS low fat blueberry yogurt
- 3 oz. PICS Greek vanilla yogurt
- 1 package frozen mini phyllo cups
- Fresh Strawberries
- Fresh Blueberries
Thaw the phyllo cups for 10 minutes (they are already pre-cooked….FABULOUS!!!).
Rinse the strawberries, hull them and slice them; set aside.
Rinse the blueberries and set aside. In a bowl, fold the yogurts together.
Fill each phyllo cup with the mixture.
Lay the strawberries around the top as if they are pedals on a flower and top with a blueberry as the center of each flower.

Strawberries Nutritional Facts: One of my favorite facts that I learned about strawberries is that they are a source of Vitamin C. Who knew? It’s not something I thought of when I first learned this fact about these beautiful red fruits. They are a complex bite packed with all kinds of goodness. But, here’s a link to learn straight from the experts exactly what you’re eating when you eat a strawberry. Strawberry Educational Link
Blueberry Nutritional Facts: Wait a minute! Blueberries have Vitamin C in them too? YES! Again, not a vitamin I think of when I look at blueberries. These fruits are also complex bites filled with goodness. Here’s that educational link to learn more for yourself and to share with your family. Blueberry Educational Link
