Grape Parfait Ingredients
The first time I made these, I was shocked at how 3 simple and healthy ingredients could give me such a treat fix. All you need is
That’s it! It’s really that easy. The grapes give you a sour element and the yogurt provides the sweetness. Then top it off with granola for some crunch. All three of those elements together make one delicious treat!
Since discovering how easy they are to make, fruit & yogurt parfaits have become a regular part of our lunchbox rotation. My kids ask for them all the time. Like most recipes I like to make and share, they are very simple to prepare; so I don’t mind the least bit.
You might be wondering how to pack yogurt in a lunchbox without it going bad. Ever since I shared my original parfait recipe, I’ve been asked several times. I finally made a video laying out how to keep yogurt and parfaits good until lunch, even if you are packing hot and cold lunch items in one lunchbox.
Watch how easy it is:
Since my son can’t have dairy, I simply swap regular vanilla yogurt for my quick and easy dairy-free yogurt. It’s an easy change to make, and it’s one way all my kids can enjoy the same delicious foods, even when they have different dietary needs. I often present this grape parfait to my kids as a dessert. Because the ingredients that comprise this grape parfait are fresh and healthy, this is one dessert you can give your kids guilt-free.
- ¾ cup green grapes
- ¾ cup red grapes
- 1 ½ cups vanilla yogurt
- ¼ cup granola
- Divide half the grapes between 2 small bowls or chilled thermos conatiners.
- Top with yogurt, remaining grapes and a final layer of yogurt.
- If serving immediately, sprinkle the granola over the parfait. If packing for a lunch, divide the granola between 2 small lidded containers.
