Blueberries, raspberries, raisins, granola, o my!

These days, I have been only seeking to eat yogurt parfait. Something about the crunchy texture and sweet flavor of the granola with the smooth, cool texture of the yogurt makes me ooze with delight. What a perfect combo to totally satisfy your sweet tooth and need for crunch factor. I love it, I love it, I love it.

What I love even more about yogurt parfait is that there are so many ways to dress up such a simple food. You can just have granola with yogurt, but add in some fresh strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries, and you just created yourself a masterpiece. It's simple, chic, and totally healthy for you. 
Just look at that delicious yogurt parfait- filled with fresh, bright red strawberries, crunchy granola, and strawberry yogurt, nothing (besides Jesus lol) can bring me better joy than this. Do I sound crazy to you? I probably do. I mean, I'm raving on and on about yogurt parfait lol. 

What's even more awesome is that this breakfast food is extremely healthy for you. You cover essentially three food groups by eating this: fruits (strawberries), dairy (yogurt), and carbs (granola). If there are nuts and/or raisins in your granola, that's an extra bonus- protein right there baby! So, don't go for the processed foods or grab an Egg McMuffin on the go at Mickey D's. Get yourself a yogurt parfait instead! 

You want to make one yourself? That's super easy peasy too! All you need are yogurt, granola, and fruit! I tend to lean towards Greek yogurt now; my roomie Monica recently introduced me to "FAGE" Greek yogurt, and I've been obsessed. The first time I tried it, I was like blech because the first taste was so sour, but once you get used to it, it's delicious and oh-so-creamy. Mix in honey with "FAGE" yogurt, and it's heavenly~ 
 +   = pure happiness =)

Anyways, take your yogurt, granola, and fruit and just assemble into layers. How easy is that!
