This delicious Greek yogurt parfait is infused with the freshness of grapefruit zest, honey and a rosemary infused simple grapefruit syrup. I was simply amazed with how beautiful rosemary pairs with grapefruit. The Baker’s Almanac has the best chart for describing the most delicious herb, spice and fruit parings.
I certainty don’t eat enough grapefruit. I forget how deliciously tart and pleasantly bitter they taste. Not only that, they are low in fat and contains many beneficial nutrients such as a strong concentration of vitamin C, calcium and magnesium.
Ingredients you will need for Rosemary Infused Grapefruit Parfaits
Greek yogurt: I chose a 2% milk fat Greek yogurt. I prefer Greek yogurt because it’s thick and creamy. It also has a tartness that goes well with fruit.
Grapefruit: I grabbed some red grapefruits from my neighborhood market for this tasty parfait. This parfait would also be a mazing with ruby red or pink grapefruit too!
Lemons: A healthy squeeze of a lemon added to the yogurt will amp up the freshness of the parfait.
Rosemary: Fresh rosemary is a must for this parfait. I would steer away from dried rosemary.
Crumble: I made a crumble made with flour, butter, walnuts and rolled oats.
This is how you make Rosemary Infused Grapefruit Parfaits
Rosemary infused grapefruit simple syrup: This is the best part. I sliced 2 large grapefruit, removed the peel and membrane. I dropped the slices into a 4 quart sauce pan with a few sprigs of rosemary. The grapefruit is so juicy you wont need to add any other liquid. Unless of course, you have grapefruit liqueur. Then, WOW!! Save the extra for cocktails!
Grapefruity yogurt: I used about two cups of 2% Greek yogurt, and mixed in fresh grapefruit zest, a touch of honey and a squeeze of lemon juice.
The crumble: I had some left over crumble mixture from the Strawberry Lime Crumble I made the other day. I had kept it in the freezer. I added in more rolled outs and crushed walnuts, and baked it at 350°F until the crumble turns a slight brown color.Print
