Honey-Yogurt Parfait with Dried Fruit and Granola

Prep Time: 15 Minutes Total Time: 15 Minutes

Servings: 1

Layering yogurt with fruit and crunchy granola is a great way to maximize textures in a healthful breakfast or snack. Fresh fruit, such as berries, can be substituted for dried fruit if you prefer.

Greek yogurt (such as the Fage brand) is strained, so it’s extra thick and creamy. It is also much higher in protein than regular yogurt. Sweetening it to taste with honey gives it added lushness with less sugar than many presweetened yogurts.

The parfait looks enticing served in a goblet, wine glass, or wide-bottomed clear tumbler. With a narrow glass, you’ll be able to get two layers; if your glass or bowl is wider, just one should do it. If your appetite is up to it, double the layers.


  • 1/2 cup plain nonfat or low-fat yogurt, preferably Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/4 cup mixed chopped dried fruit, including raisins, apricots, and sweetened cranberries
  • 1/4 cup granola
