"This is delicious for breakfast, snack, even for a dessert! It looks great in a glass, but can also be made in a bowl. Use your favorite fruit, or whatever is in season." — Natalie

I had a parfait like this at a hotel once and have made them at home ever since. Try a mix of blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries on the bottom, a cup of plain lowfat yogurt, a handful of golden raisins, and top with granola. A great way to start the day!
Even though this was an over all good dish, I really have a problem with the ingredient amounts. 2 cups of yogurt was way too much for one serving and having only 8 blackberries was not enough. I also used berry flavored granola so that added a bit more depth of flavor that I don't think it would have other wise.
I used Dee's Dark Chocolate Granola in this recipe and sliced bananas tossed with last summer's frozen blackberries. My kids thought this was the best, like getting dessert for breakfast. Happy kids=happy Mom.
Great for breakfast! I used fat free greek vanilla yogurt and used a mix of blackberries, strawberries and blueberries. I topped it with a little wheat germ and honey. Very good and good for you too!
My grandson loved thsi for breakfast! I did parfait this & I just had plain yogurt so I added a tsp of vanilla to it. Almond Maple Granola (from this site) worked perfectly in this recipe. I used thawed, frozen raspberries (I too sprinkled them w/ a little sugar) & I sprinkled just a little raw sugar on top to add some sparkle. Thansk Natalie!
Honey bunches of oats crushed make good granola topping for this awesome snack. That's what we already had on hand.
I make something like this all the time- only I used 1.5 cups of fresh blueberries, 6 oz. of lowfat vanilla yogurt, and only 1/2 cup of granola. I'll also sometimes sprinkle ground flax seeds on the granola.
I used plain greek strained yogurt and homemade almond maple granola from this site. Since the yogurt was unsweetened I thought it might need a bit of honey, but it was fine as it was. Delicious!
