A refreshing treat for breakfast or lunch, a yogurt parfait is the way to go in the summer with so many fresh berries at our fingertips. It's also the time of year when berries are the least expensive so go ahead and indulge in this healthy and delicious treat. My oldest could eat three of these in one sitting so offer them to the kiddos as well as the grownups :)
Mountain High Original Vanilla Yogurt* (can be found at any local grocery store)
French Vanilla granola (found at Harmons & Whole Foods)
Starting with the yogurt, layer ingredients one heaping tablespoon full at a time. Continue until you hit the top! Garnish with a mint leaf for extra points in the presentation department :)
* This is my absolute favorite yogurt. It holds zero artificial sweeteners and although it's not officially "organic", it does not play host to any additional growth hormones. It's tart, yet tangy, just like the European-style yogurts I love so much. It's not expensive, it's available at most any grocery store (at least in my area), making it a great buy for us all! The "original vanilla" is much better than its "lowfat" counterparts, so don't expect the same experience. Go for the Original!
