Banana Blueberry Yogurt Parfait

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

Next to smoothies my other favorite breakfast is yogurt parfaits made with fresh fruit.  One of my favorites is McDonald’s fruit and yogurt parfait – strawberry yogurt, strawberries, blueberries and granola.  It is also fun to make them at home.  You can do all kinds of fun combinations. Today’s recipe for Banana Blueberry Yogurt Parfait was one that I made after some inspiration from my Healthy Cooking August/September 2010 issue. 

I love the textures you get in parfaits – nice creamy yogurt, crunchy granola, along with a pop of fresh fruit.  Thawed frozen fruit works well too or you can even use granola that has dried fruit in it.  Parfaits like this Banana Blueberry Yogurt Parfait are a great way to start of the day because you can get protein from the yogurt and the granola.  It gets your body going and helps you feel full.  They also work great as a snack or even dessert.

Microwave Granola
Very Healthy Granola
Nature Valley Oats and Honey Granola Bars (crushed up) or the cereal (which is hard to find)
Quaker Oats n’ Honey Granola

  1. I love parfaits but the one’s at Mickey D’s never seems to have enough fruit in them so I make my own. Fresh granola always finish’s one off.
