Recipe: Fresh fruit parfait

A favorite breakfast treat or afternoon snack at our house is a fresh fruit parfait.

I start with fat-free plain Greek yogurt and pile on a generous layer of fresh fruit such as strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, pineapple or mango chunks. I sprinkle low-fat granola over everything, and top with a dollop of sugar-free whipped topping.

Not only is this comfort food tasty, but it is chock full of good-for-you protein, fiber, calcium, potassium and Vitamin C. And it takes only minutes to make.


This recipe makes 2 generous servings.


  • 1 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup fresh fruit
  • 4 tablespoons fat-free granola
  • 4 tablespoons sugar-free whipped topping


Start with a layer of the Greek yogurt in the bottom of a tall glass.

Layer fresh fruit over the yogurt.

Add granola and sprinkle evenly over the yogurt and fruit.

Top with a generous dollop of whipped topping.
