Yield: 4 parfaits


  • 12 oz (350g) dried apricots
  • 1¼ cups orange juice
  • ½ cup thick Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup muesli or granola
  • 2 tbsp pistachio nuts, slivered


  1. Combine the apricots and orange juice in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Lower the heat and cover. Simmer for 25–30 minutes, or until very tender.
  2. Cool slightly. Transfer the apricot mixture to a food processor and purèe. If the mixture is too thick, add a little more orange juice.
  3. Serve warm or cold, in individual serving dishes with layered Greek yogurt, muesli, and pistachio slivers.

Notes: Peach Parfait: Instead of apricots, use 12oz (350g) dried peaches. The parfait also makes a delicious sauce for frozen yogurt, thinned with a little juice.
