Yummy Yogurt Parfait


Makes 1 serving, takes about 10 minutes

(Can be Vegetarian, Nut, and Gluten)

My kids love to make parfaits, not just because they can get creative and a little silly (no heat involved), but because they are delicious to eat! We never use flavored yogurt – only plain and organic. The ‘other’ stuff has WAY too much sugar in it, and the berries and honey add all of the sweetness needed. Grab some healthy gluten-free granola for a fiber-rich, carb-light, snack or breakfast. Its also fun to surprise mom (or dad) with pre-made parfaits first thing in the morning… maybe even with breakfast in bed!

o  1/2 Cup plain yogurt
o  1/2 Cup mixed berries (cut to the same size as a blueberry)
o  3 Tablespoons granola
o  Local honey to drizzle
o  1 Cup (clear plastic wine glasses are our preference)
