These greek yogurt parfaits are a big hit in my home! My kids, who aren't normally yogurt eaters, can't seem to get enough! With the addition of fresh fruit with strawberry and blueberry preserves, how could they NOT love them? What's great about these, is that kids have a whole lot of fun making their own parfaits. I like to lay out some chopped fruit for them, along with the yogurt, preserves, and granola, and let them assemble it on their own. They have a blast doing it and it makes them feel like little chefs! :)
plain greek yogurt(I like the Fage Brand)
granola(I like the Organic Pumpkin Flax Plus Granola by Nature's Path)
1 10 ounce jar of strawberry preserves
1 10 ounce jar of blueberry preserves
an assortment of chopped fruit
Take some strawberry preserves(I like to start with half of a jar), and place it in a small mixing bowl. Add a squeeze of lemon juice. Mix well and repeat with your blueberry preserves. Set aside.
Assemble your parfaits. Start with a dollop of yogurt, some strawberry preserves, some chopped fruit, then finish with some granola. Repeat steps(except this time use some blueberry preserves). Serve immediately.
