Servings 6 servings



  • 1 1/2 cups plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp unflavoured gelatin
  • 1 1- inch strip of lemon rind
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whipping cream

Peach Compote

  • 1 lb fresh peaches about 2 large
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp lemon juice



  • Line a colander or mesh sieve with a coffee filter, or cheesecloth, and place in a bowl. Add the yogurt to the colander/sieve and allow to drain for at least 4 hours, or ideally, overnight. Discard the drained liquid.
  • In a small saucepan, add milk, and sprinkle with gelatin. Allow to sit and soften for 5 minutes.
  • Add the strip of lemon rind, sugar and vanilla to the saucepan with the milk and gelatin. Heat over medium-low, and cook just until the sugar and gelatine have dissolved. Set aside to cool to room temperature. Remove the lemon rind.
  • Once cooled, add the strained yogurt, and stir to combine. Press the mixture through a mesh sieve. This will catch any lumps of gelatin, and create a smooth mousse.
  • In a separate bowl, whip the cream to stiff peaks. Then, gently fold it into the yogurt mixture.
  • Spoon into parfait cups and chill for at least 4 hours.


  • Chop the peaches into large chunks.
  • Add peaches, water, sugar, vanilla and lemon juice to a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the peaches have softened and sauce has thickened slightly, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  • To Serve
  • Top each parfait cup of chilled mousse with the cooled peaches. Add a dollop of whipped cream and slices of fresh peaches, if desired.
