I like parfaits because they take about 3 minutes to make, and are super versatile. Cherries were on sale, so I went with that. I'm sure any fruit you have will work, so just take your yogurt, fruit, and some crunch like granola and layer them. It's a nice texture combination, and the presentation gives out super style points. I feel like I could impress a girl with this (but there's probably no fooling some of you), which might be a great idea down the road. When you're hot and tired, give this summer treat a shot.
I don't know the exact measurements for the recipe, and sort of just layered things, so just use your best judgment. Remember, we just make stuff up here.
Cherry Coconut Crunch Parfait
1 cup low-fat, vanilla yogurt
1 cup cherries
½ cup granola
¼ cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
Take out a clean, small glass like a wine glass. Layer yogurt, cherries, granola, and coconut into the glass until you have between two and three layers each. Chill for a few minutes to combine the flavors, and enjoy.
Serves 1-2.Oh and a word of advice, coconut and cherries go really well together. It might sound weird, but they are like a fun version of peas and carrots.
