Honey-Yogurt Parfait with Dried Fruit and Granola

Honey-Yogurt Parfait with Dried Fruit and Granola

Layering yogurt with fruit and crunchy granola is a great way to maximize textures in a healthful breakfast or snack. Fresh fruits, such as berries, can be substituted for dried fruit if your prefer. 

Greek yogurt is strained, so it's extra thick and creamy. It is also much higher in protein than regular yogurt. Sweetening it to taste with honey gives it added lushness with less sugar than many presweetened yogurts.

The parfait looks enticing served in a goblet, wine glass, or wide-bottomed clear tumbler. With a narrow glass, you'll be able to get two layers; if your glass or bowl is wider, just one should do it. If your appetite is up to it, double the layers.
