Five minutes and four ingredients are all you need to assemble these delicious parfaits - perfect for dessert.

Ingredients

2
containers (6 oz each) strawberry, raspberry, key lime or banana-cream pie fat-free yogurt
3/4
cup blueberries, raspberries or sliced strawberries
6
tablespoons granola
2
mint leaves, if desired

Directions

  • 1 In each of 2 clear 8-ounce dishes (or use 2 martini glasses or wine goblets for a more elegant touch), spoon one-third of the yogurt from 1 container, 2 tablespoons of the berries and 1 tablespoon of the granola; repeat layers 2 more times. Garnish each serving with a mint leaf, if desired. Serve immediately.

Expert Tips

Why it Works: Good Bacteria Over 3,000 years ago, yogurt was probably invented as a way to preserve fresh milk. Today, even with refrigerators, we have learned to enjoy the creamy, acidic taste of yogurt, and the process of making it hasn't changed much. Ingredients used are milk (fat-free [skim], 2% or whole) and bacteria. In the beginning, the bacteria might have been added by simply letting warm milk sit uncovered in hopes that the correct bacteria would come along. Today, the process is more controlled (and safer): Pure bacteria are added directly to milk. As the bacteria “eat” the sugar in the milk it produces acid. And it's this acid that causes the milk to thicken into yogurt.
