  • Yogurt Berry Parfait

    A few weeks ago, Marc and I ate at a Corner Bakery Cafe for the first time. The food was decent, but not spectacular (similar to Panera Bread, actually). The best part by far was the Mixed Berry Parfait, which consisted of granola, vanilla yogurt, blueberries and strawberries. It was so good and simple, I was inspired me to make my own version at home:

    Yogurt Berry Parfait
    Serves 2

    1 cup Yummy Granola, divided (any crunchy granola will do – I like Trader Joe‘s Maple and Pecan Granola)
    1 cup vanilla yogurt, divided
    1/2 cup blueberries
    1/2 cup quartered or sliced strawberries

    1. Spread 1/4 cup granola on the bottom of two clear bowls or glasses. Top with 1/4 cup of vanilla yogurt.
    2. Combine the blueberries and strawberries in a small bowl, then pour half on top of the yogurt in each bowl.
    3. Top the berries with 1/4 cup of yogurt, followed by 1/4 cup of granola.

    *For an extra boost of omega-3’s and fiber, add a tablespoon or two of ground flaxseed.
