Fruit Parfaits

Start the day with a healthy choice that is fun to make and good to eat.

Just double the ingredients to make two or triple for 3.

Serves 1


½ cup blueberries or strawberries or a combination of both
½ cup low fat plain yogurt
1 ounce granola
Sprinkle with cinnamon, optional
Top with 1 tablespoon sliced almonds, optional

Instructions :

In a bowl or parfait glass pour in half of the granola. Top with ½ of the yogurt then ½ of the fruit. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Sprinkle with cinnamon and almonds if desired

Cooking Wiser:

If you have a bit of a sweet tooth and like the vanilla yogurt better then go for it. Or be in control of what you eat- add 1/2 teaspoon honey and a little vanilla extract to the plain yogurt.

To save sugar and calories try to stay away from the yogurt with added fruit.
