Greek Yogurt Parfait
A Greek yogurt parfait is one of the only ways I know to get my little boy to eat something healthy. The other night, I just could not get the little guy to eat anything for dinner. Finally, after way too long a time trying to convince him to eat something, I thought, why not make him think he is getting a treat? So, I decided to make him a yogurt parfait mixed with honey, fruit, and granola. Certainly not a typical dinner, but he loved it and I felt good about him eating something healthy.
I loved the Greek Yogurt parfait too, and thought it would make a healthy dessert as well. Both my hubby and I have a sweet tooth, and this parfait is able to satisfy both of us. He was pleasantly surprised by how much he liked the combination of Greek yogurt with honey along with the granola and fresh berries. By the way, I understand that if you use local honey, it's really good for helping with allergies.
Greek Yogurt Parfait
- 1 cup Greek yogurt
- 4 teaspoons honey plus some for drizzling on top
- 1/3 cups granola
- berries of choice
1. In a bowl, mix Greek yogurt with the honey.
2. Add 1/2 of the Greek yogurt mixed with honey to your serving dish.
3. Top with granola followed by berries.
4. Repeat until you have the desired amount of layers.
5. Finish off the parfait with a drizzle of honey
I love that we are eating something that is so delicious and beneficial. I constantly worry that my little boy isn't getting the nutrition he needs. But when he finishes a whole serving of this parfait with it's crunchy granola, juicy berries, and protein filled yogurt, I know he'll be alright. This Greek yogurt parfait has been so popular in my house, I'm very glad we do not need to save it just for dessert. The parfait is perfect for breakfast or a snack too. Finally, there is something healthy to eat that my hubby, my little guy, and I can agree upon.
