Thick and creamy Greek-style yogurt is a fast and healthy base for tangy parfaits. Here, Grace Parisi folds some of the yogurt with lemon juice and zest, mixes the rest with chunky cherry preserves, then spoons the yogurt into glasses in alternate layers.

  1. 1 cup heavy cream, chilled
  2. 1 cup 2 percent Greek-style plain yogurt
  3. 1/4 cup cherry preserves
  4. 1/4 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
  5. 1 teaspoon water
  6. 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  7. 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  8. 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  1. In a medium bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the heavy cream at high speed until firm. Add the yogurt and beat just until combined. Transfer half of the mixture to another bowl and fold in the cherry preserves.
  2. In a small microwave-safe bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over the water and let stand until softened, about 1 minute. Microwave the gelatin at high power for 5 seconds, just until melted. Add the gelatin to the plain whipped cream mixture along with the lemon juice, lemon zest and confectioners' sugar and beat at medium speed just until combined.
  3. Spoon half of the lemon cream into 4 wineglasses and top with half of the cherry cream. Top with the remaining lemon and cherry creams and refrigerate for 20 minutes before serving.
Make Ahead The parfaits can be refrigerated overnight.
