I actually just had this Orange Cream Yogurt Parfait for breakfast again today. It’s truly so yummy. I love it. Orange cream kinda tastes like a dream machine at Jamba Juice, or one of those orange dreamcicles. It’s creamy and light with hint of orange. I like that if you close your eyes you can tell that it’s citrus, but it’s a little hard to tell that it’s orange.
I want each of you to have a chance to try all of these recipes, plus the yogurt on it’s own so, I have got a little giveaway for you…

Should Oranges Be Stored In The Refrigerator?
For longest shelf-life, oranges should be kept in the refrigerator.
At room temperature, oranges usually keep for up to one week.
In your fridge, they’ll generally stay fresh for three to four weeks.
How Do You Zest An Orange?
Orange zest is made from the top layer of an orange’s peel.
You can use a “zester”, a tool made specifically to zest citrus fruits.
If you don’t have a zester, there are several ways to zest an orange.
With a vegetable peeler and sharp knife you can easily create lemon or orange zest.
Slice very thin pieces of peel from the orange using a Vegetable Peeler or paring knife.
Lay the peel on the cutting board, flesh side up.
Using a sharp knife, cut the peel into thin strips, as thin as you can make them.
Turn the other way and slice thinly again.
Then chop into finely minced pieces.
Or, you can make zest using the smallest side of a cheese grater.
How Long Will Yogurt Keep?
Yogurt will keep for up to 2-3 weeks in the refrigerator.
Orange Cream Yogurt Parfait
Orange Cream Yogurt Parfait
Recipe by me
- 1 32 oz Container of Chobani Vanilla Greek Yogurt
- 3 Oranges zested, and juiced
- 6 Large Egg Yolks
- 1 Cup White Sugar
- 1 Stick Unsalted Butter cubed
- 1 Pinch of salt
- Fill a medium sauce pan half full of water, and heat over medium heat.
- Once it begins to boil turn it to a simmer.
- Meanwhile in a large glass bowl, whisk the egg yolks until smooth, add the sugar, juice and zest and a pinch of salt.
- Whisk until smooth, and set over the simmering water.
- Using an electric mixer or your muscles with a whisk, whisk until the mixture is light in color, thick and has doubled in volume. This may take up to 20 min. I know that's a long time, but turn on a tv show or some music. You can do it, and it does go faster using the electric mixer.
- Remove from the heat and whisk in the butter until smooth.
- Let cool in the fridge completely.
- Fold 1/3 of the orange curd into the vanilla yogurt, and then fold the rest in.
- Serve with berries and granola of choice.
