Yogurt, fruit and crunchy granola a perfect parfait snack
Creamy Greek yogurt, fresh fruit and crunchy granola make a delicious and wholesome start to the day or a great afternoon snack — and layering them in a glass makes this simple combination feel like a special occasion.
Greek yogurt makes the creamiest parfait, but there’s no rule against using another kind of yogurt. You can use regular yogurt, but since it is thinner than Greek yogurt (extra liquid has been drained from Greek yogurt so that it’s really thick and creamy), the layers might not stay as well defined. We like the colour contrast between plain (unflavoured) yogurt and the fruit, but if you use sweetened or flavoured yogurt, skip the honey.

In small bowl, whisk yogurt and honey until smooth. Spoon one-quarter of the yogurt-honey mixture into each glass. Top with 1/4 cup berries, followed by 2 tablespoons granola.
Repeat layering process with remaining yogurt, berries and granola. When you’re done, you should have two layers of yogurt, berries and granola. Serve within 15 minutes or granola will start to become soggy. America’s Test Kitchen provided this article to the Associated Press.
While Greek yogurt is the creamiest, you can use a regular yogurt instead. The layers of fruit, granola and yogurt make for an appetizing treat.
