Fresh Fruit and Yogurt Parfait

on September 28, 2011

Here’s a great recipe for breakfast or an afternoon snack.  I also like it before bed if I am working out early the next day. 


Fresh Fruit Parfait

>Sugar free light vanilla yogurt.  Blue Bunny scores a 100 on the Nu Val Nutrition scale!
>Strawberries and/or raspberries
>Walnut pieces

Spoon some yogurt into a parfait  or wine glass.  Actually, any sort of container will work for this but it is impressive in glass!

Top with blueberries, then more yogurt, then raspberries, then yogurt, then blueberries.  A dollop of yogurt  on top and a sprinkle of walnuts make it look pretty! 

Nutrition (approximate) Calories: 217, 0 fat, 91 mg sodium, and 24 g of sugar.  I know that seems like a lot of sugar but it is naturally occurring sugar in the fruit.  All yogurt is not created equal so use Nu Val if your store offers it or compare sugar content- some yogurt is comparable nutritionally to a candy bar which pretty much defeats the purpose,
