- almond granola– you can use plain or vanilla flavored
How to make a parfait
- For this recipe start off by rinsing your berries or fruit and patting them dry.
- Then begin assembling your parfait by layering the chopped berries, greek yogurt, and choice of granola in order. I like to layer the parfait ingredients in stemless wine glasses because it makes it look extra fancy, but you can place them in mason jars for a more vintage look.
What is a parfait?

How long will it keep?
Once you assemble the parfait, its best to enjoy it right away, but you can keep in the fridge for up to 1 day. Just make sure to cover it with plastic wrap if its in a glass cup.
How far in advance can I make a parfait?
To save time, you can chop up your berries or fruit a day in advance and assemble whenever you’re ready to enjoy it. You can always make it the night before and enjoy it fresh out of the fridge the next morning. The granola might not be as crunchy though.
