Snack Attack- Dairy-Free Yogurt Parfait

IMG_4573 I begin every morning with a 10 minute meditation and a yogurt parfait. it’s my tried and true recipe for an amazing day. Who am I kidding I have this as a snack before my dinner and sometimes after dinner as a dessert. Last night, I experimented with some fruits. I wanted to dress up my yogurt with new ingredients. Pear, banana, strawberry, granola, bee pollen.

I had a huge amount of strawberries in my fridge. What better way to put them to use than to make homemade strawberry glaze.

I also sliced a banana and grilled it with butter and sprinkled powdered cinnamon on both sides.

My go to yogurt is usually Kite Hill. Unfortunately, my local Whole Foods stopped carrying the original Kite Hill Yogurt. So I had to go with the brand’s Greek-Style Yogurt for this recipe. Let me tell you that this Greek style yogurt taste close to regular milk yogurt. without the thick texture and tart flavor. the flavor and texture is a perfect balance.

 

Strawberry Glaze Ingredients:

  • ! cup of strawberries
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp of of lemon juice

Instructions:

  1. Crush a cup of strawberries
  2. place crushed strawberries in a medium saucepan. add 1 tbsp of sugar
  3. cook and stir over heat until mixture thickens

  5. let cool

Last step:

Let your creativity take over and decorate your bowl with your homemade toppings.
