All Natural Fruit Yogurt with Cream and Jelly

This is an all-natural fruit yogurt dessert. Parfait recipes are traditionally made with layered fruit and ice cream but in this parfait recipe the yogurt replaces the ice cream. Natural yogurt goes well with the fruit flavored gelatin because the sharpness of the yogurt flavor complements the sweetness of the gelatin. The chocolate sprinkles on top give a nice finishing touch to this gelatin and yogurt parfait.

You can vary the gelatin flavors, using pretty much any gelatin flavors you want, or you can add different fruit. You can even use a flavored yogurt if you prefer. This is a very easy gelatin recipe to make and you can add your own individual touch to it. What about using sugar-free gelatin to make it extra healthy, or using another kind of yogurt instead of all-natural fruit yogurt?

If you want to serve this gelatin and yogurt parfait for breakfast, you could even swap the chocolate sprinkles for a tablespoon or two of granola, or your favorite cereal. If it is for dessert, then you can add ice cream syrup, marshmallows, nuts or anything else you fancy. You can get really creative with this gelatin and yogurt parfait recipe.
