Meatless Monday has arrived and what better to start the week with than a blueberry parfait.
I love making parfaits for breakfast or a morning snack. My husband even likes to eat it as a light dessert after dinner. This blueberry parfait is easy to make and the best part about it is that I used my homemade granola.
The great thing about parfaits is that there are no rules. You can add whatever you want to them and it’s absolutely delish. A lot of people I know like to use plain greek yogurt, but I have found that greek yogurt is a bit bland and I’m really just not a big fan of it (I know… I know… don’t judge me). I only like using plain greek yogurt for when I’m making a sauce or cooking with it.
But for my parfaits I found that the best greek yogurt that is also the lowest in carbs is from light and fit. I buy the vanilla greek yogurt, it’s only 13 grams in carbs for 1 cup; compared to over 30 grams of carbs for the regular greek yogurt. It adds a nice sweetness to your parfait too… seriously it’s just divine.
- ½ cup Vanilla Greek Yogurt
- Granola (Homemade if possible)
- Add half of your vanilla greek yogurt in a small bowl or cup. Add a few blueberries and top with granola. Place the remaining yogurt on top and then add more blueberries and granola. Serve and enjoy.
