Thank you National Watermelon Promotion Board for sponsoring this post. Watermelon is the perfect portable food for enjoying wherever life takes you!
I love watermelon! Living in NYC, where everything is fast-paced. The best time to enjoy watermelon is on-the-go. This time I am sharing a 10-minute on-the-go summer watermelon parfait recipe.
The ingredients for this parfait are very simple! Besides greek yogurt, granola and watermelon, I also added fermented glutinous rice for a delicious Asian touch!
Fermented glutinous rice is a common Chinese ingredient that can be used to make a variety of Chinese deserts. It’s sweet and sour, great for enhancing the flavor and texture of our watermelon parfait.
Ps: You can find the fermented glutinous rice in most Chinese grocery stores.
What I like to do is making the watermelon parfait for my husband and I the night before and store them with small mason jars in the fridge overnight. The watermelon parfait jars are our perfect on-the-go breakfast the next day!
Here’s a great tip I learned from Watermelon board website: you can eat the whole watermelon! Besides the flesh and juice, watermelon rind can also be used to make dishes. For more information, you can check out this post: Three Ways to Eat Watermelon Rind.
I hope you enjoy this ridiculously simple and super tasty on-the-go summer watermelon parfait recipe. Leave a comment to let us know your thoughts about this recipe or share it with your friends and family! Till next time!
