Strawberry Pina Colada Parfait 3

 

Here lately I have been on a huge greek yogurt kick. There are so many uses for it, depending on the flavor you get. The plain greek yogurt can be used to replace butter and sour cream for a healthier alternative. Vanilla can be used for pretty much any and everything else. While I was browsing through the grocery store the other week, there was an awesome deal on greek yogurt so of course, I stocked up. Once I got home I had to figure out what to do with all of it. I decided to make my twist on a parfait and make a Strawberry Piña Colada Parfait Recipe.

This recipe is great for breakfast, lunch, or even dessert. It is very easy to make and only takes seconds to assemble. Also, this recipe is very versatile and you can add in dried fruits,nuts, chia seeds, and so much more to create a unique parfait every time. The secret to a great parfait is the yogurt, that is why I only use vanilla greek yogurt. It is creamy and filling and gives a parfait the right type of fluff.

You will only need a few ingredients to make my Strawberry Piña Colada Parfait Recipe.

Ingredients:

2 cup freshly sliced Strawberries 
1 cup Greek Vanilla Yogurt
1 cup Homemade Tropical Granola ( see recipe below)

It is so simple! Follow these easy directions:

Directions:

-Wash, remove the stem of the strawberries 
-Pull out your parfait glass and begin to built your parfait.
-Place 1/2 cup of the homemade tropical granola on the bottom of the glass.
-Second layer will be 1/2 C of Greek Vanilla yogurt.
-Top with half of the fresh Strawberries.
-Repeat with a layer of the remaining granola.
-Layer with the rest of the Greek Vanilla yogurt.
-Top off the parfait with the remaining Strawberries.

    I’m afraid that I don’t like granola so I’d probably use something like cornflakes or rice krispies as a substitute. I’d certainly enjoy strawberries for breakfast 🙂
