Ingredients

4 cups fresh or thawed frozen fruit (bananas, strawberries, peaches, or mango)

3 cups non-fat vanilla yogurt

1 1/2 cups granola           

2 tablespoons sliced almonds (optional)

Instructions

  1. Before you begin wash your hands, surfaces, utensils and fresh fruit.
  2. If using fresh fruit, peel, and/or trim as needed. Cut fresh or frozen fruit into 1/2 inch thick slices.
  3. Layer 1/4 cup yogurt into each of 6 cups or bowls. Top with 1/4 cup sliced fruit and 2 tablespoons of granola.
  4. Repeat layers one more time, ending with a layer of granola.
  5. Top with sliced almonds if using.


Tips

  • Try using different flavors of nonfat yogurt in your parfait.
  • Layer parfait just before serving to keep granola crunchy.
  • Use any high-fiber cereal you like instead of granola.
  • Try topping with rinsed, chopped fresh mint leaves for extra flavor and color.
  • To save money, use fresh fruits in season. When seasonal fruits are hard to find, used thawed frozen fruit.
