Recipe sourced from Share Our Strength's Cooking Matters
4 cups fresh or thawed frozen fruit (bananas, strawberries, peaches, or mango)
3 cups non-fat vanilla yogurt
1 ½ cups granola
2 tablespoons sliced almonds (optional)
- Before you begin wash your hands, surfaces, utensils and fresh fruit.
- If using fresh fruit, peel, and/or trim as needed. Cut fresh or frozen fruit into ½-inch thick slices.
- Layer ¼ cup yogurt into each of 6 cups or bowls. Top with ¼ cup sliced fruit and 2 tablespoons of granola.
- Repeat layers one more time, ending with a layer of granola.
- Top with sliced almonds if using.
- 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.
