  • 4 tsp. honey

Preparation

Grapefruit Yogurt Parfait with Toasted Amaranth

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Place the coconut flakes on a baking sheet. Toast the coconut until golden brown and fragrant, about 5-7 minutes.

3. Segment Florida Grapefruit and set aside.

4. Toast amaranth, pour the dry grains (don’t rinse) into a dry pan. 

5. Set the pan over medium-high heat until they gently pop, usually about 3 to 5 minutes.

6. Spoon 1/4 cup yogurt into the bottom of each glass or Mason jar.

7. Top with a few segments of Florida Grapefruit, 1 tablespoon popped amaranth, 1½ tablespoons toasted coconut and 1 teaspoon honey.

8. Repeat to create another layer.

9. Top each glass with extras and sprinkle the remaining coconut on top.

Helpful Tip: If you don’t have access to raw amaranth, try substituting with quinoa.
