Seasons Eatings (Part 1) - Yogurt Parfait

I absolutely love the Holiday season! In fact, I am so much in awe of it that through the rest of the year I either reminisce about the season past or dream of the joy ahead. There is definitely something about the crisp weather, festive lights, gatherings with family and friends and, you guessed it - all the yummy food and drinks!! Over the years, ‘yours truly’ has witnessed several Holiday parties. I’ve eagerly awaited the casual and laid-back potlucks while dragging myself to the fancier dress-up counterparts. Nevertheless, once the feast hit the table, I really didn’t care much about the surroundings. 

 

In the next few weeks, I will share with you my choicest pick of Holiday recipes that you can whip up in a snap and be the star of the evening. To good health, good food and good friends, Cheers! Seasons Eatings and a happy New Year! 

Heavenly Yogurt ParfaitIngredients:

- 1 small size/individual serving size favored yogurt

- 1/3 cup granola

- ½ cup chopped fruits (I prefer sturdy fruits like banana, dates, berries, cantaloupe, papaya, mango)

- 1 tbsp raisins

- Honey (optional)

 

How To Make:

At the bottom of a parfait cup (a tall cup with wide mouth and narrow bottom), scoop 1/3rd of the granola, Spread 1/3rd of the yogurt, followed by 1/3rd of the fruit. Repeat these layers until you reach the top such that the top most layer is of fruits and granola. Sprinkle raisins and drizzle honey if you like.

 

This is a no-guilt dessert that’s suitable for any time of the day. It makes a great breakfast as well!

 

Tips

- You can try any combinations for flavored yogurt, granola and fruits. You are only limited by your imagination. My favorite combos are Berry-Banana, Vanilla – Tropical Fruits (Mango & Papaya), Banana – Dates

- You can also top the parfait with finely chopped honey roasted nuts
