A Guilty Secret

CherriesI have a confession to make.  I have eaten the fruit and yogurt parfaits from McDonalds and liked them.  They are surprisingly good. Not only are they good but they have inspired me to make them at home which I have done.  They are simple to make and can be eaten for breakfast, as a mid-day snack, or a light dessert.

Just start with some vanilla yogurt (I like Lucerne), your favorite granola and any type of summer fruit, such as, peaches, nectarines, cherries (my husband’s favorite in the parfait), plums, pluots, blueberries and other berries that are in season.

First layer the fruit in the bottom of a bowl, make sure to cut into bite size pieces, next add some yogurt to cover, sprinkle over some granola and finally another layer of yogurt to cover.  Enjoy!

    Yum! This sounds so good! I have to try this for my husband – he sneaks and buys those McDonalds’ parfaits every once in a while. This sounds so much better! Thanks!

    I’ve never done the McDonald’s parfaits. But I do want to try your recipe. Sounds wonderful.
