Fresh fruit, tangy Greek yogurt, and a few extra goodies make this high protein snack a no brainer for breakfast or to satisfy your afternoon sweet tooth.
The hubs gets all the credit for this snack. I swear he eats this meal every damn day of his life but never gets sick of it! I know that many of you, including me, have a hard time digesting dairy. Not this guy, he’s got a stomach made of iron I tell ya. Or maybe it’s because he’s Persian and they’re used to incorporating yogurt into their daily meals. At any rate, if you can tolerate dairy, I say go for it! This delicious high protein snack with just the right amount of tart and sweetness is an obvious favorite for my honey. Enjoy!

THE INSIDE JOB: containers to use, how long it lasts, how much to prep, mistakes not to make, how to add custom flavor….etc.
- The hubs usually assembles 4 days worth of the parfait. Yes, I’m a mean wife and make him prep some of his meals for the week too! 😉
- You can add in any extra spices or fruit you want. The sky is the limit! (Cinnamon, cardamom, honey, kiwi or blueberries to name a few)
- You’ll notice I like to leave the appropriate size measuring cup in the large container for granola. That way I always know what the correct serving size is. I do this for all my dry goods including- oatmeal, oatbran cereal, & granolas.
Remember, it’s YOU vs. YOU!
