Granola, Berry & Yogurt Parfait Recipe
With the long weekend and an extra week off of school, the big girls have been staing up late and lazing it up in bed until 11am-ish the last few days. I decided they weren’t spoiled enough, so I brought them breakfast in bed. Baby Aria and I prepared the parfaits mixing fresh berries, kiwi, granola and honey-flavored yogurt. Simple, sweet, healthy and filling.
If you feel the urge to make freshly baked granola at home, my friend Sarah at Nuts About Granola offers a "bake-it-yourself" granola kit (it costs only $3.99). It has been widely available in supermarkets on the East Coast and is also available online. I’m a huge fan of their product, and you'll actually find my recipe on the back of the box! Give it a try and you’ll be as Nuts about Granola as I am.
Yields: 4 servings3 cups honey yogurt (click on the link for the recipe)
1½ cups freshly baked granola
2 cups fresh berries (blueberries and strawberries)
4 ripe kiwis
Using a vegetable peeler or a sharp paring knife, peel the kiwis. Dice and transfer them to a mixing bowl. Add strawberries (previously hulled and quartered) and blueberries. Set aside.
In individual serving bowls, divide the yogurt among the bowls. Form a well, then cover with the freshly cut fruit. Top with freshly baked granola.
Note: The proportions are approximate; the size of the bowl really depends on the appetite of the eater!
I used Green Valley Organics honey-flavored yogurt. It's by far the best yogurt on the market in my opinion.
I didn't add more sweetener as the yogurt and berries have plenty sugar already.Published By: on February 18, 2013.
