This Cranberry Sauce Parfait is a light, creamy, and delightful breakfast or dessert that can be enjoyed anytime, but especially during the holidays. It’s made with layers of creamy Greek yogurt, tart cranberry sauce, and crunchy granola topped with a drizzle of honey for a sweet finish.


  • 2 cups Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup cranberry sauce
  • 1-1 ½ cups granola
  • 2 tablespoons honey (optional, if needed)


  1. In a small dessert glass, add ¼ cup of yogurt to the bottom. Add 3 tablespoons of cranberry sauce. Add 2 tablespoons of granola over top.
  2. Repeat with another layer of ¼ cup yogurt, a tablespoon of cranberry sauce, and top with a granola.
  3. For extra sweetness, add a drizzle of honey on top (if needed).
  4. Repeat with remaining 3 dessert cups.


How to store:. If you’re using dessert glasses, cover them with plastic cling wrap and store them in the fridge for up to 3 days. You can also use mason jars with lids for better storage.

How to freeze: Place the parfait in a freezer-safe container with a cover or lid and freeze for up to 1 month. Thaw overnight in the fridge before topping with granola, honey, and other desired ingredients.
