I know, right?

Juuust look at all that goo.

In my produce fantasy, ripe drippy peaches and sweet tart cherries would be available year-round, but what is real is that they have one foot out the door. For this reason, I’ve been eating them, roasting them, grilling them, freezing them, cheesecake-ing them,, like crazy in order to get my fill.

A few leisurely Saturday mornings ago, I was flipping through the July Cooking Light and spotted this recipe for Roasted Plum Breakfast Parfaits. In that very moment, I was too disheveled, bespectacled, under-caffeinated, and morning hair-ed to go to the grocery. So instead, I utilized what was already in my icebox, which were – you guessed it – peaches, cherries, and walnuts. I threw them in the oven with some coconut oil, roasted ‘em off, waited for them to cool, then stuck them in a glass with yourt (lately, Siggi’s Icelandic-style vanilla yogurt has been my fave). With a drizzle of honey. Dreams do come true.

All put together, these parfaits were a joy to consume. It’s as though you’re eating dessert for breakfast with sweet, tangy, creamy, crunchy decadent flavors, but it’s oh so healthful.  You can use your yogurt of choice – lemon or strawberry, anyone? Plain’s great, too!  You can even top with homemade or store-bought granola for some extra fiber.

Roasted drippy peaches, tart n sweet cherries, creamy thick yogurt, crunchy nutty roasted walnuts? Steezy McSteeze with a side of hella goodness.  This idea of a decontsructed smoothie – parfait style – could easily replace my same ol’, same ol’ banana-blueberry-almond milk smoothie. Since we’re taking parfaits and figs are coming into season, I’m also jonesing to make this Roasted Fig and Walnut Parfait I showed you a couple of years back.

5 from 1 vote
Roasted Peach, Cherry, and Walnut Yogurt Parfaits are a unique dessert with fresh stone fruit for the ultimate celebration of produce!
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings: 6 parfaits


Roasted Peaches:

  • 2 large ripe peaches pitted and chopped into sixths, but firm
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil melted

Roasted Cherries:

Yogurt Parfaits:

  • 3-3/4 cups Vanilla Greek Yogurt* 30 ounces
  • 1 cup walnuts roasted
  • Honey


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Place the cherries in a small casserole dish, along with 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, and one tablespoon of coconut sugar. Toss ingredients together until coated
  • Add the peaches to a separate casserole dish and drizzle with coconut oil. Stir to be sure all sides of peach slices are coated in oil
  • Roast the cherries and the peaches for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring once half-way through. The peaches may need slightly longer than the cherries.
  • About 10 minutes before the fruit is finished roasting, spread the walnuts on a baking sheet and roast for 5 to 8 minutes, or until golden and crispy.
  • Remove the fruit and nuts from the oven and allow everything to cool to room temperature. If desired, chill fruit in the refrigerator until completely cold.
  • Prepare the parfaits by adding alternating layers of yogurt (I used about 5 ounces of yogurt per parfait), roasted peaches, roasted cherries, and roasted walnuts to a glass. Serve with a drizzle of honey and enjoy.


*Also try Icelandic or Aussie-style yogurt

Questions and Reviews

  1. Roasted peaches are one of my favorite summertime desserts! So easy and so delicious! These parfaits look fantastic.

  2. i have to get my grilled peaches with honey these photos.

  3. Ugh…that goo! I think cherries and peaches sound even better than plums. And I’ve grilled peaches but I have yet to roast them or cherries. I have a feeling I’m missing out because they look amazing in this parfait!

  4. OMG ju, What a wonderful recipe! Your pictures are amazing my mouth is watering by looking at those photos!!! I haven’t grilled peaches yet this summer! Now I have a good reason to do it! I truly love this parfait! 😉

  5. You had me at cherries but added peaches and yogurt. OMG I just can’t even! Send me all of this please and thank you

  6. Bring on the goo! These look amazing. Roasted up those fruits just makes them 10 billion times better than they all ready are. And anything for breakfast that reminds me of dessert is a total WIN!

  7. This sounds yummy! I’ve been making a yogurt & fruit thing for breakfast, which is plain Greek yogurt, a half scoop of chocolate protein powder, 1 TBSP cocoa powder, fresh fruit, and chocolate granola… That was our breakfast this morning, with fresh blueberries and strawberries. I really like the idea of doing it with roasted fruits.

  8. YESSS! Give me all the cherries. I love how you roasted the fruit for these, and your photos are beautiful!

    1. Hi Lisa! I would say 48 hours would be the longest I’d keep it. It won’t go bad after 48 hours, but it will begin to separate and the fruit will have a funny texture. Enjoy! xoxo
