HOMEMADE PARFAIT : a recipe

 Ok in all fairness I can't really call this a recipe...  There isn't much to it at all and there is no baking or cooking involved at all.  
We all love parfaits in this house, and my kids have a huge love for fruit.  I think this is a perfect snack for any day of the week.  We actually made these on little Jacob's birthday for an after lunch snack that day.  

Super easy.  

WHAT YOU WILL NEED : 
** your favorite flavor of yogurt - we got a big tub of vanilla **
** your favorite frozen fruit - we got strawberries sliced in sugar **
** granola - we got ours in the bulk area at Winco and it is the cinnamon raisin kind **

(You can do whatever flavor of yogurt, fruit and even granola you want, the combination possibilities are endless ).  We just grabbed what was our favorite.  


I love these little dessert cups that I have had for years and years.  I think I got them when my dad passed away maybe?  Either way I love them for things just like this.  They aren't too big and not too small either.  

Now you just layer everything together.  

WHAT TO DO :
Layer like this
yogurt
fruit 
granola
yogurt 
fruit 
granola


It was a perfect little snack for the afternoon.
I can only imagine all the possibilities of combinations that you could create for these. 
I think next time I might try raspberries.  This is making my mouth water just typing this up and looking at that yummy picture.
Some people may not like the raisins in there, but I like the added little surprise and mixed in with the yogurt they are super yummy!

I love that my kids love this kind of thing for snack.  It is so much better than junk and it is super inexpensive to make in large amounts too.  

What is your favorite fruit and yogurt combination?
