Guess how easy it is to make yogurt parfaits?
As long as there’s yogurt, a selection of fruits, and some crunchy granola or nuts, you’ve got everything you need!
Even your kids can help with this fun and healthy snack or dessert! Get them involved in the fun and teach them kitchen safety and knife skills while you’re at it! (Learn more about this in our Real Food Kids eCourse!)
If you have multiple fruits and a few flavored yogurts, put everything into little bowls and set up your very own sundae bar — without all the sugar.
For a dairy-free version, use a dairy-free alternative like coconut milk kefir. Or for a completely sugar-free dessert, keep your yogurt plain.
With this array of healthy ingredients, you can easily serve it for breakfast as well.
Kid-Friendly Yogurt Parfaits
As long as there's yogurt, a selection of fruits, and some crunchy granola or nuts, you've got everything you need to make a yogurt parfait!
- berries chopped apples, pears, peaches, applesauce, thawed frozen fruit, and/or other fruit
- granola or chopped crispy nuts and seeds
- unsweetened shredded coconut toasted
Chop fruit, if necessary.
Put yogurt, fruit, granola, nuts, seeds, and coconut out on the counter.
Give kids parfait glasses and show them how to layer the yogurt and fruit. This depends on how deep your parfait glasses are, but I usually aim for 3 layers of yogurt, 2 layers of fruit, and a sprinkle of something crunchy on top.
Once fruit and yogurt are layered, sprinkle with the granola, nuts, seeds, or coconut.
Enjoy your custom-created snack or dessert!
