2. Layer ¼ cup yogurt into each of 6 cups or bowls. Top with ¼ cup sliced fruit and 2 Tablespoons granola.

Chef's Notes

  • Layer parfait just before serving to keep granola crunchy.
  • Use any high-fiber cereal you like instead of granola.
  • Try topping with rinsed, chopped fresh mint leaves for extra flavor and color.
  • To save money, use fresh fruits that are in season. When seasonal fruits are hard to find, use thawed frozen fruit.
  • Use leftover fruit in Fruit Smoothies.
  • Use Homemade Granola.
