1 cup of coconut yogurt, or greek yogurt (can also use dairy, soy, cashew)
1/2 cup granola
In a small saucepan add cherries, orange zest, and juice. Heat over medium heat until bubbling, then reduce to medium-low heat. Simmer for about 8 to 10 minutes, lightly mashing the fruit and occasionally stirring until cherries are tender, and compote is slightly concentrated and can coat the cherries. Cool if desired before topping, or transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate up to 3 days.
To make the Parfaits:
In a medium sized cup or jar layer ¼ cup of yogurt, then ¼ cup cherry compote, 2 tablespoons granola, then repeat layer one more time. Enjoy immediately or cover and enjoy the next day.
Taste the compote and add any additional sweetener like agave, maple syrup or honey as needed. The cherries I purchased were very sweet and did not need additional sweetener.
