To get the most benefit from delicious superfruits, eat them in their freshest state. Bursting with flavour, a mild splash of rosewater (available at specialty food stores) makes them even more sumptuous—don’t overdo it or it will overpower the flavours rather than enhance them. This recipe can be altered to use your favourite superfruits—just mix and match to your taste buds’ delight!
1 cup (250 mL) strawberries
1/4 tsp (1 mL) rosewater
1 cup (250 mL) raspberries
1 cup (250 mL) blackberries
1 cup (250 mL) blueberries
1 cup (250 mL) Balkan-style plain yogourt
Wash and slice strawberries; mix with rosewater and set aside. Wash other berries and keep the varieties separate.
In parfait glasses place 1 Tbsp (15 mL) of yogourt and cover with sliced strawberries. Cover with another tablespoon of yogourt, then alternate berries and yogourt to fill glass.
Top with a blackberry and serve immediately. May also be refrigerated for up to 1 hour
