strawberry yogurt parfait

strawberry yogurt parfaitThis breakfast is speed and simplicity. Our double whammy of flavor makes this berry berry good to you, so you get strawberries two ways. What a luscious way to start the day!

Preparation Time: 6 minutes

Servings 4


4 cups fat free or low fat strawberry yogurt

4 cups quartered fresh strawberries

2 tablespoons light brown sugar

3/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted

1 cup low fat whole grain granola


Spoon yogurt into 4 shallow serving bowls. Combine strawberries and brown sugar; spoon over yogurt. Top with almonds and granola.


Check out the new granolas at your local market–many are whole grain, lower in fat and sugar, and higher in crunch than just a few years ago. I like it sweet, but you may not need the brown sugar–experiment and see.


vanilla yogurt may replace the strawberry and walnuts may replace the almonds. If you have vanilla yogurt, intensify its flavor with a few drops of real vanilla extract, or even better, the inside of a real vanilla bean, scraped into the creamy softness. Also, soy yogurts are also increasingly available, and increasingly delicious.
