Chocolate Raspberry Yogurt Parfait filled with layers of crunchy chocolate granola, creamy yogurt, and a fresh, sweet-tart raspberry sauce. Perfect for breakfast or dessert.
This Chocolate Raspberry Yogurt Parfait has become something of an obsession of mine. I know, obsession seems like an exaggeration. But considering that I’ve been eating these for breakfast, afternoon snack, and dessert (and sometimes bedtime snack) …..
They’re very addictive.
The components for this Chocolate Raspberry Yogurt Parfait are easy to prepare and easy to keep on hand for whenever the craving strikes. Or when you want breakfast. Whichever comes first.
It all starts with the chocolatiest Double Chocolate Granola. Sweet, crunchy, and super chocolatey. It’s baked with a chocolatey coating. Then chocolate chips are sprinkled on top of the warm granola. You can either let the chips cool and they will keep their shape, while being fused to the granola. Or you can stir the melted chips into the granola and all of the clusters will be covered with chocolate. A sprinkling of raw sugar after everything has cooled gives added crunch.
And what could be better with sweet, crunchy chocolate than a tart, intensely raspberry, Raspberry Sauce. My Raspberry Sauce that Practically Makes Itself was developed specifically with this parfait in mind. It’s perfectly syrupy with pieces of raspberries and a pure, fresh raspberry flavor. And as its name implies, it practically makes itself. It’s made with frozen raspberries that are macerated in sugar. There’s no stove-top cooking involved so the berries retain their fresh flavor.
There are several choices for the yogurt to use in this parfait: plain, Greek, or vanilla. I like mine made with plain yogurt. I like the light and fluid texture of plain yogurt. I also like its tangy flavor. The amount of sugar I use in the Raspberry Sauce is perfect (for me) with unsweetened yogurt. Of course, adjust the amount of sugar to your own taste. If you use a sweetened vanilla yogurt, you may want to put less sugar in the Raspberry Sauce.Print

There's no going wrong with chocolate and raspberry! Love those beautiful layers with the creamy yogurt! Such a delicious dessert, Kelly 🙂
It's so irresistible! Thanks so much, Dawn!
This looks incredible! Yogurt with granola in the form of parfait is good just about any time of day.
It sure is! Thanks so much, Balvinder!
I'm not surprised these are very addictive. They look and sound absolutely amazing! I never thought about making granola all chocolatey just by sprinkling some chocolate chips on top of warm granola. I'll need to try that when I'm making my next batch. Thanks for sharing this beautiful recipe!
A happy accident that I discovered in a too hot kitchen. I tried letting the granola cool and chocolate chips harden when my Dubai kitchen was about 100 degrees F. Since the melting point of chocolate is 86-90 degrees F, that was never going to happen. It turned out delicious though and that's how I've made it ever since, even when the kitchen is cooler. Thanks so much, Neil!
Kelly, I absolutely love how your delicious recipe build upon each other to make more delicious recipes. This one is gorgeous!
Haha! Yes, I guess I do that! Sometimes I start with an ingredient I love and go crazy making all sorts of dishes with it. Sometimes I start with the final dish, and work backwards developing the ingredients for it. Thanks so much, Valentina!
I could see making that granola and raspberry sauce and whipping out one of these parfaits every single day! Maybe twice. Maybe more. Yum!
I love knowing I'm seconds away from having one of these any time the craving strikes! Thanks so much, Laura!
These look totally breakfast worthy and so so gorgeous. I will be trying your chocolate granola, so this is just another way for me to devour the whole lot. Yum.
Once you have the ingredients on hand, these take seconds to put together. So easy for breakfast! Thanks so much, Marie!
I love this kind of dessert in a glass, easy to make and hard not to like. A beautiful combination!
They're so easy and so pretty! Thanks so much, Adina!

All That I'm Eating
What a great way to make something special for breakfast! And for a light dessert too. Sounds delicious.
Thanks so much!
John / Kitchen Riffs
Parfaits were THE dessert when I was a kid, then basically disappeared, but lately have been making a comeback. Good thing -- they're so good. And SO pretty! Very nice -- thanks.
They well deserve their position of being THE dessert, John! They're so easy to put together with endless possibilities of flavor and texture. I love the contrast between all the layers. They're relatively healthy as far as desserts go. And you're right, - they're so pretty! Thanks so much!
David @ Spiced
Ah! I see that you had bigger plans for that granola and raspberry sauce. This parfait looks amazing! Have you ever met a person, you say, "Let's get some parfait," they say, "Hell no, I don't like no parfait."? Parfaits are delicious! You definitely did this one justice...that flavor combo is totally calling my name right now! 🙂
Haha! David, I have never met that person! Especially when they get a look at how pretty they are! I love the different layers of flavors and textures. So much fun to eat! Thanks so much!
These pictures are so vivid!!!Love it!
Thanks so much, Ambar!
Perfect timing dear ! Fresh raspberries are all over the place ! Thank you so much !
I love raspberry season! Thanks so much, Davorka!
I have always loved the combination of chocolate with raspberry. I would absolutely love these for breakfast too 🙂
They're wonderful! I could eat them all day long! Thanks so much, Kankana!
David Scott Allen
Looks both refreshing and (as you note) addictive, Kelly! And somehow light and satisfying at the same time!
It is surprisingly light and satisfying, David. I don't usually like anything sweet for breakfast, but somehow this is just as wonderful for dessert as it is for breakfast. I guess I'll just have to keep eating it until I figure it out! Thanks so much!
Parfaits like this are some of my favorite things! The fruit sauce, the granola and yogurt sound like an amazing combination, and these are picture perfect!`
They're so light, fresh, and addictive! Thanks so much, Marcie!
YUM!!! I'd love one of these gorgeous parfaits for breakfast, then an encore for dessert!
That's exactly how I do it, Liz! With the addition of one for afternoon snack! Thanks so much!
These parfaits sound (and look) incredible! I love that double chocolate granola, especially in combination with raspberry, what a terrific idea. Thanks for sharing, Kelly! 🙂
It's so addictive! Thanks so much, Nicole!
Chocolate Raspberry Yogurt Parfait make the perfect on the go breakfast or snack. Thanks for sharing
Thanks so much, Marie!
These look great. I would like to make them for a brunch. Can I make these ahead (by an hour or so) without the granola becoming soggy since they are covered in chocolate?
Hi Kelsey, they could probably be made a little ahead of time!
