Fruit Yogurt

Yogurt Parfait

Since I get a little teased (okay, a LOT) for having unhealthy food on this blog, here is a healthy recipe!  Fruit, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and protein all in a glass.  There are many fruit parfait combos out there obviously, but I really enjoyed the colors and different fruit flavors in this one.  If you like the one at McDonalds, I am almost 100% sure they use Dannon’s Light & Fit Vanilla Yogurt.  I buy the big tub and it tastes exactly like the yogurt parfait at McDonalds.

Yogurt Parfait
yield 2 servings

1 cup plain yogurt + 1/4 tsp. vanilla OR 1 cup vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup strawberries, diced
1/4 cup mango, diced
1/4 cup blueberries
1/2 kiwi, diced
1/2 cup granola (we liked the organic oat and honey, but use what you have on hand or what you like)
2  tsp. honey

1.  Mix together the yogurt and vanilla if using plain yogurt.  Obtain 2 large serving glasses or 2 bowls.
2.  Mix the strawberries, mango, blueberries and kiwi together.  As pictured above, I layered each part of the parfait once.  You can do that by dividing and layering the yogurt, then fruit, the granola, then honey between the two serving glasses.  Or, for more layers: layer 1/4 cup of yogurt into each glass, a fourth of the fruit mixture into each glass, a fourth of the granola into each glass.  Repeat.  Drizzle the top layer with honey.
