Greek Yogurt Parfait

When I first tried Greek Yogurt (used it in my green smoothies) I was NOT a fan!  It was good enough in the smoothies, but to eat it plain....YUCK!  It was too sour and I didn't like it.  Oh how the taste buds can change! I now find myself taking a lick off the spoon when I make my smoothies and thinking that it's pretty good. 

I love McDonald's Fruit and Yogurt Parfaits so I had the brilliant idea this week to make my own!    I was in desperate need for a new snack idea and this was just what I needed!  It is packed with protein to keep me from starving after 5 minutes and is just sweet enough to curb my sweet tooth.

Here's what I do:
1/2 cup frozen fruit, thawed - I use triple berry mix - raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries
1 cup greek yogurt - vanilla
Sugar free sweetener - I use Truvia (duh)
1/2 Nature Valley crunch granolla bar, crushed

Not too shabby - 285 calories and 20 grams of protein.  You can easily leave off the granola bar to save some calories.  It depends on if I have earned an extra treat or not.


  1. Thank you for this recipe! I have all of these ingredients in my kitchen and am desperately looking for new snack ideas!

  2. Sounds delicious! Will definitely be trying it! One of my faves is vanilla Greek yogurt, sliced up banana and slivered almonds. It's sooo quick and easy!
