The other day, I was at our local FreshMart and they were having a sale on strawberries and blueberries. It was 3 for $5, so I just had to buy some sweet, yummy berries since ours won't be ready for a while yet.
J's been working soooo hard and since he had a fire practice and firefighters' meeting, I decided to reward him with a cool, tasty, healthy, sweet treat.
You will need the following:
1 c strawberries, halved or quartered
1 c blueberries
2 c yogourt (I use natural/plain low fat or vanilla, but you can use whatever you want)
1 c granola (I use AllBran cereal instead. It gets a bit mushy or soggy, but it's less fat than granola)
4 tbps almond slivers (I use unsalted sunflower seeds, because J's neices are allergic to nuts, therefore we don't have any in the house)
This recipe makes 4 servings, so you will need 4 parfait dishes. We don't have parfait dishes, so I use good sized tumblers.
1) layer the dish with yougourt
2) add a layer of strawberries
3) add a layer of yogourt
4) add a layer of granola
5) layer some blueberries
6) add a layer of yogourt
7) some more strawberries
8) a dollop of yogourt
9) garnish with a few blueberries and a strawberry
10) sprinkle with almond slivers (or sunflower seeds...)
Absolutely deeeelish...and not bad for you either! :)
