Day 116 - Easy Greek Yogurt Parfait

Easy Greek Yogurt Parfait

This is one of the easiest lunches ever - easy to put together, easy to eat.  It's a simple yogurt parfait that I threw together.  A traditional parfait is usually layered in a tall glass.  Actually, a traditional parfait is a French dessert that looks very little like what we eat in America.  But I digress...anyway, this is not a prettily layered parfait.  It has three layers - granola, yogurt, berries.  I added a dusting of granola between the berries and yogurt to keep the strawberries from producing too much juice and drowning the yogurt, but this little beauty is pure function.

If you like, you could put the ingredients in a mason jar (which are soooo trendy right now) and break up the layers for a better look.  As long as your container has a good fitting top - mason jar, plastic bowl, or whatever - these keep well in the fridge for quick breakfasts and snacks.  Or, as in today, lunches!

Easy Parfait

3/4 cup sliced strawberries
1/2 cup plain, vanilla, or honey Greek yogurt, fat free
1/2 cup low fat granola
1 T honey, optional

In a 16 ounce container with a tight fitting lid, pour in granola, reserving about 1 T of granola for later.  Gently spread yogurt over granola, and top with honey if desired.  Sprinkle your reserved granola over the yogurt, and top with berries.  Secure lid and keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
