Today is National Donut Day (!!!) and while I typically don’t celebrate the crazy food holidays anymore, it didn’t feel right to let this one pass me by. I love donuts too much to let it go.
So, today I’m sharing a recipe for layered donut parfaits! Because if you’re going to eat donuts, you might as well mix in a little fresh fruit to balance things out. Click through for the recipe.
Donut Parfaits (makes 1 serving)
- 1 glazed donut or 4 glazed donut holes
- 5 oz vanilla yogurt or pudding (or whipped cream or custard)
- 1 cup of chopped fruit of your choice (we used strawberry, mango, and kiwi)
Begin by chopping the donuts and fruit into small (quarter or dime size) pieces. Using a parfait cup, begin layering your ingredients starting with the donuts, then pudding and then fruit. Repeat until you fill the parfait cup.
Instagram friendly… For a more photo-worthy parfait, use a squeeze bottle, like this, to layer the pudding to get more control of where the pudding is going.
