my favorite snacks : packable fruit and yogurt parfait
Parfait literally means perfect in French. And I think it is a wholly appropriate name for this recipe. There is something so simple and yet so satisfying about fruit and layers of creamy yogurt topped with crunchy granola. And, dare I say, it is the perfect snack.
Especially when you pack it up in a Mason jar for easy transport. Just put the granola in a separate container and sprinkle on just before devouring.
I struggle to call this one a “recipe” because really, it is just assembly. I’m not going to give you measurements, because to make a perfect parfait (redundant!), it should be entirely personal.
My version has bananas, oranges, and blueberries with honey yogurt and granola. Yum-o!
I love parfaits for a snack because they include such a great diversity of food groups and fill that ever-present afternoon sweet tooth attack. Pack one of these suckers and it’ll never even occur to you to hit the vending machine.
What would be in your perfect parfait?
