Crunchy, Creamy, Sweet Yogurt and Fruit Parfait

Yogurt Fruit Parfait 613119866 770X553 1 745X490

Juicy strawberries, blueberries and cherries are tucked into layers of non-fat Greek yogurt – with just enough granola added for crunch and a touch of honey.

The colorful fruits supply healthy doses of vitamin C and antioxidants while the yogurt adds a calcium and protein boost. Unlike presweetened yogurts, we use raw honey (reminder: never feed honey to infants under age 1) for a sweetness that’s not overly cloying.

Try one for breakfast or a healthy snack today.

Ingredients

  • 1 quart plain, nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup blueberries, rinsed
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, rinsed and sliced
  • 1 cup jarred cherries
  • 4 teaspoons honey
  • 1 cup of your favorite homemade or store-bought granola

  2. Add a second layer of ½ cup yogurt, topped with ¼ cup jarred cherries, another ⅛ cup granola, and ½ teaspoon of honey. Repeat for the remaining 2 parfaits.
