The tart lime yogurt was a lovely contrast to the sweet yellow plum compote, making this one of our favorite light summer treats.

For the yellow plum compote
we used Pascale Weeks’ Mirabelle (plum) Jam with vanilla and star anise recipe.

to make the lime soy yogurt:

  1. Strain 1 & 1/2 cups of soy yogurt through a cheesecloth to remove the extra liquid.
  2. Add the zest, juice and sugar and mix well.

to make the parfait:

  1. Place a tablespoon or so of the plum compote in the bottom of a parfait glass.
  2. Add a layer of granola.
  3. Add 2-3 tablespoons of the lime yogurt.
  4. Repeat the layers.
  5. Top with a few slices of yellow plums and we added a bit of green using stevia leaves


You can use any plum to make this tasty compote.
