Summer Yogurt Parfait With Fruit & Granola

When it’s hot, I really don’t even want to think about turning on the stove.  How about a cold, fruity parfait for breakfast that can be made ahead of time?  One evening you can make parfaits for breakfast, lunch, or snacks and refrigerate them for up to 3 days.

Use a 12-oz mason jar and fill with layers of summer fruit, maple yogurt, and granola. Cover with a lid and store in the refrigerator until needed. Easy and delicious!  I’m using low-fat Greek yogurt to keep it healthy and adding 2 teaspoons of pure maple syrup. Yum! If you don’t have maple syrup, you can substitute local raw honey or raw agave nectar to add a  little sweetness. You can taste and add more to taste. Fresh or frozen blueberries, cherries, and raspberries work well but I recommend fresh strawberries for best results. If your fruit has a stone like cherries, remove the stone first. You can use other seasonal fruit like peaches, nectarines, or even bananas sliced.

Having a group over for fun in the backyard?  Use half as much of ingredients per small glass and make multiple small servings. Another fun idea is to set up a parfait yogurt bar with bowls of fresh fruit, maple yogurt, granola, or nuts.  This would work well in any season for an inside brunch.
