Yogurt Berry Parfait

If you’re looking for a healthy high-protein Yogurt Berry Parfait, look no further! There are countless yogurt brands out there, some flavored, some with fruit on the bottom, and others are sprinkled with granola. Some might say that the recent yogurt boom is thanks to Greek yogurt, the super thick yogurt that has more protein and less sugar and almost resembles ice cream.

But, here’s the thing – even though yogurt is a popular, probiotic-packed snack that turns up on most diet plans, not all yogurt is healthy.

Many yogurts you find at the market are loaded with added sugar and chemicals. Those strawberries at the bottom of your cup? They’re pretty much pie filling. Other strawberry or cherry-flavored yogurts source additional color from crushed up beetles. And, don’t even get us started on the ones with candy in them. So while adding your berries is slightly less convenient than reaching for the store-bought stuff, it’s worth the extra 15 seconds.

This yogurt berry parfait recipe is a delicious, fiber-rich alternative to pre-packaged offerings. The plain yogurt, which is sweetened naturally with applesauce, can provide your digestive system with good bacteria without synthetic sugars getting in the way. Top it with a little bran for fiber and texture and mix in some fresh fruit. We chose blueberries and raspberries for this recipe, but you can swap them out for the same amount of your favorite. Peaches and blackberries also make a great combination, especially in the summer when stone fruit is at its juiciest.

At 212 calories and a whopping 14 grams of protein and 7 grams of fiber, these yogurt berry parfaits are a great quick breakfast for those mornings when you hit snooze a few too many times.
