Yogurt Parfait

DSC_0710Here’s one of our favorite breakfast treats.  It’s so easy to make, and it’s so fun to eat, especially in a special parfait or wine glass.

Instead of the typical granola, we layer with trail mix or nuts.  Start with yogurt on the bottom, then add fruit, and then nuts.  It’s easy to make this dairy free too using dairy free yogurt.

Cherries on top make it feel extra special.  My kids always ask Grandma for 2 cherries and she says with her contagious, joyful heart, “Sure, why not?!”  I think we should all learn something from her philosophy, and I think we’ll be glad we learned it before we’re Grandmas!

You can also make a simpler version in a bowl using whatever fruit and nuts you have on hand.  This is a frequent afternoon snack for me.  I add cinnamon to it for extra yummy flavor.  Enjoy!
