Tips and variations

  • Experiment with different fruit and yogurt combinations. If you don’t like nuts, top with granola or crushed cereal instead. 
  • Parfaits are a popular option when preparing food for groups. Layer the parfait ingredients in a large clear bowl. Alternatively, set out the ingredients and small clear glasses and let guests customize their own parfait.
  • This is a great recipe to prepare with young children. Kids may be more likely to try a new food (fruit, etc.) if they make it themselves.
