Greek Yogurt Parfait With Homemade Granola
Greek yogurt parfait with homemade granola is sure to satisfy. The homemade granola adds the perfect crunch to this parfait.
I’m always looking for a quick and easy breakfast like this Greek Yogurt Parfait, especially when mornings are so busy and always feel rushed. Most days, especially weekdays, there is no time to cook anything. I’m typically looking for something to eat that is quick and easy. I like to eat yogurt, but after eating plain yogurt for a while it starts getting boring. One thing I love is granola, but sadly the typical granola is over 100 calories for a 1/4 cup serving. By the time I factor in the calories from the yogurt and fruit (if I add it), I’m looking at more calories than I care to eat for one meal.
I wanted to find a way to make my own granola without all the calories, but was unsure if that was possible. Then, I can across a recipe for an “energy-boosting” granola recipe from Skinny Ms.. After looking over the ingredients I knew it wouldn’t be the typical granola. However, I was still intrigued with how this recipe would taste with my morning yogurt. I made the recipe and was pleasantly surprised. It was very easy to make. I created a parfait using the granola recipe, fresh fruit, and Dannon Light & Fit Original Greek 80 Calorie yogurt. I used vanilla, but any flavor would work.
This Greek Yogurt Parfait is a healthier version compared to a typical yogurt parfait. 80 calories for the Greek yogurt, 102 calories for 1/4 cup of the homemade granola, and 38 calories for the fresh fruit (1/4 cup each of raspberries and blueberries). Granola is nearly impossible to get really low in calories given the ingredients, but having a recipe that is lower in calories is helpful.
My favorite part of this low-calorie parfait is the crunch and flavor of the homemade granola. It makes a big batch, so be sure to keep it in an air tight container until you use it up. You can choose to layer the ingredients, or put everything over the top of the yogurt.
