Quick No Bake, Somewhat "Healthy" Dessert

Quick No Bake, Somewhat "Healthy" Dessert

On a hot summer night, sometimes I crave a cool, refreshing dessert after a satisfying dinner. A little sweet to top off the savory, but nothing too heavy. Whenever I want a less-guilty dessert that I can enjoy after eating a full meal, I make a fresh fruit parfait. Layered chunks of ripe mango, chilled Greek yogurt, and syrupy raspberry jam makes for a delicious combination. Ready in minutes, the only work this dessert involves is cubing mangoes and scooping layers. Flavored with honey rather than sugar, this recipe is so much healthier than a bowl of ice cream or a piece of cake. Get it now, just


Mango-Raspberry Parfaits
From Rachael Ray

2 ripe mangoes, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2 cups Greek yogurt or whole-milk yogurt
4 tablespoons seedless raspberry jam
1 ounce raw or roasted sliced almonds (1/4 cup)
1 to 2 tablespoons honey

  1. Divide half of the mango pieces among 4 glasses and add a few tablespoons of yogurt to each glass.
  2. Stir the raspberry jam to soften it and spoon on top of the yogurt.
  3. Add one or two additional layers of mangoes, yogurt and jam, then top with the almonds and a drizzle of honey. (You can prepare the dessert a few hours ahead; refrigerate it without the nuts and honey and add them just before serving.)

Serves 4.
