Recipe inspiration

Cooking with Astrology “Leo” is coming to a close with this delicious Papaya Mango Parfait. It was inspired by the sunshine colors of papayas and mangoes, and continued the Greek theme with thick, rich Greek yogurt!

I originally served them in 14.75 oz wine goblets, because they were the only glasses that I could find at Target. I have come back in and made fruit and yogurt parfaits that are more in line with dietary guidelines. The calorie and carbohydrate counts dropped in half!

No, this post is not sponsored by FAGE…..it just happens to be the yogurt that I like and I know that I can eat it (lactose-intolerant) without any issues!

Ingredients needed

Ingredients needed to make Papaya Mango Yogurt Parfait.
  • Greek yogurt – full-fat, 2% or non-fat
  • Honey to sweeten and pure vanilla extract to flavor the yogurt
  • Granola – I used Homemade Vanilla Almond Granola but store-bought will work as well. For even more tropical flavor try the Pina Colada Granola!
  • Fresh papaya and mango. The papaya shown above is a “green” papaya. Yellow/red flesh papaya was not available.

Recipe Notes & Tips

  • For vegan parfaits – use coconut yogurt and substitute agave nectar or maple syrup for the honey.
  • These parfaits are gluten-free if using certified gluten-free oats. Double-check the package if needed.
  • If using flavored yogurt, skip the vanilla and probably the honey. Check the label to see if sugar has been added.

This month’s Cooking with Astrology – Leo meal

Since we are looking out for our Leo friend’s heart, I chose a vanilla, almond organic granola. We could all use the heart healthy benefits of the entire Leo meal! Almonds are packed with fiber, plant omega-3’s, calcium, folic acid, phytosterols, vitamin E, magnesium, and potassium. The papaya is packed with vitamins A, C, E, and K, which are all antioxidants that benefit the cardiovascular system and prevent atherosclerosis.

The tomatoes in the Tomato Pilaf are extremely high in vitamin C and a good source of vitamins A and K. Tomatoes are also loaded with lycopene, an antioxidant that prevents heart disease. Yes, there is a method to my madness!
