Fruit and Yogurt Parfaits with a bit of crunchy granola make a delicious and healthy breakfast or light lunch.
The fruit offers wonderful vitamins while the yogurt provides protein and enzymes that aid in the digestive system.
Fresh fruit parfait recipes are so easy to prepare. It is more of a how to really than a recipe. Making a healthy fruit parfait at home is more economical than buying them prepared at the store or from a restaurant.
You can even make a few parfaits ahead of time so they’re ready to go when you need them. Hold off on adding the granola until you’re ready to eat them or it becomes soggy. Soggy granola is not very tasty…..I can tell you from personal experience.
A tasty fruit parfait with granola is kid friendly too. There is no wrong choice with fruits, just use your favorites.
Even the picky eater at our house (the mister) enjoys these parfaits and he is not real big on eating fruit.
When I was working outside of the home in an office everyday during the week, I preferred these fruit parfaits for a lunch that didn’t feel so heavy on my tummy.
Every bite of this layered treat is delicious with a burst of berry, creamy yogurt and a bit of crunch of granola are a perfect combination.
If a more traditional breakfast is more your thing, enjoy these parfaits as a snack or healthy style dessert.
