Granola, Berry & Yogurt Parfait Recipe

Granola, Berry & Yogurt Parfait Recipe 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. 

Ingredients

Yields: 4 servings

3 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


Directions

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!

Serve immediately.

Bon appétit!


Tips

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.
