Greek yogurt parfaits are a quick and easy dessert idea. Making these easy Greek yogurt parfaits with fresh berries and crunchy granola bars create a fruit parfait that is as delicious as it is healthy!
My kids love crunchy granola bars, especially the oats and honey bars. I used our favorite crunchy granola bars to make a quick and easy summertime dessert option for the kids to enjoy.
To boost nutrition, I try to go for a healthier version of traditional granola bars, made with wholesome, organic ingredients that aren't too high in sugar. I prefer bars that are free of trans fats, hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, artificial flavors, artificial preservatives and ingredients sourced from GMOs. I also like to get at least 4-5 grams of protein per serving, if possible. Protein isn't as important in the bar if you can also give this snack a protein boost with Greek yogurt or milk.
How To Make Easy Greek Yogurt Parfaits
2 cups plain Greek yogurt
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon fresh orange zest
4-5 tablespoon raw, local honey or raw organic agave nectar
2 cups fresh berries of choice (rinsed, patted dry and sliced)
4 granola bars, crumbled (you can also use my recipe for homemade granola here)
Mix the first four ingredients in a mixing bowl until smooth and blended. Place crumbled granola bars in the bottom of four parfait dishes. Pour yogurt mixture on top and add fresh berries. Serve immediately or chill until ready to eat.
