Strawberry Yogurt Parfait

I had a bad experience with yogurt recently. On Sunday, I bought Margaret River's Greek Style yogurt and was surprised to find it tasting, SALTY and sour! Silly me thought that it was just my luck and I should head back to the store to get MORE yogurt... and I bought the Plain Margaret River one to go with muesli. Guess what happened this morning? It was SALTY and SOUR again!

Now, I'm no yogurt expert but I'm pretty sure yogurt is NOT supposed to be salty! I mean, a tinge of sourness is acceptable but SALTY?

Anyway, I rang the supermarket and told the Margaret River Dairy company. Haven't heard back from them. I certainly hope they will get the problem rectify soon because their yogurt is really quite nice when it isn't salty or sour....

I'm abit of a fuss pot when it comes to yogurt. Store-bought normal ones just isn't the same as freshly made one. My personal favorites are from Athena and Moo.

I wish I have pictures to show you, but the Moo premium yogurt store looks quite cool! hehehe.. Moo Yogurt and Athena current top my list for having nice tasting creamy yogurt! Next in line is Margaret River (ONCE they get their act together!).

I had this for dessert one night. It came out of the blue really. Mr AR had an offer where we bought one tub of Moo yogurt and get the other free. So out of my excitment,I drew my inspiration from my recent Tiramisu and put this together quickly.

Strawberry Yogurt Parfait
2 sponge fingers
few tablespoon of coffee
1 tablespoon of brandy/rum
100grams of yogurt
sliced strawberries


1) Cut sponge fingers in small pieces. Soak sponge fingers in coffee/brandy mixture
2) Place bite size sponge fingers at the bottom layer. Top with yogurt and strawberries. Repeat till you reach the top!
3) Smooth yogurt out. Garish with strawberries

Must head back to the store soon! =)

The Parfait looks and does tastes great :) It is smooth at the start for the first couple of spoonfuls, until you taste the coffee and rum and then you'll get a hit and wake up a little :) The amount of coffee and rum was just nice for this desert I think.
