Fruit and granola parfaits

Do you ever take a series of photos of a particular food and forget that you took them? Only to find them, weeks later, screaming out to you from Lightroom? That's exactly what I did to these parfaits. And I feel terrible because they were delicious. I hope they can find it in their crunchy, creamy, fruity hearts to forgive me.

I had made this delicious granola as one of my challenge recipes, and knew that I wanted to throw it together with some other ingredients to create some sort of parfait. I pondered these parfaits in my sleep. I do that every so often. Ponder food in my sleep. 

Here's what I did.

I purchased two of those convenient little 6-oz. containers of Greek yogurt and mixed about a tablespoon of honey in each container.

I put the yogurt-honey mixtures into the bottoms of two separate tall glasses. 

I put a few spoonfuls of granola on top of the yogurt.

For the top layer of one parfait, I mixed together:

1 kiwi fruit, chopped

1/2 of a mango, chopped 

1 pineapple slice, chopped

For the top layer of the other parfait, I mixed together:

4 strawberries, sliced

1/4 cup of blueberries

1/4 cup of raspberries 

Easy, delicious breakfast served! Just like that.

I made this granola a couple weeks ago and our family enjoyed it with yogurt and fruit, too! We also ate it with milk as cereal and as an ice cream topping, drizzled with hot fudge. Its possibilities are endless!

These are gorgeous! Add honey to your own yogurt is such an easy jazz up...why did I not think of that?
