Greek Yogurt Parfait
Parfait Featured Image

Why Hello Stranger! I’m so sorry I’ve been MIA. Funny enough my absence was to attend the BlogHer Food Conference in Seattle. It was awesome! I went, I ate, I learned, I networked, I had a blast! Click here to see some of my recaps.

I arrived home inspired but coming off a red eye, I had no time, desire or energy to cook. Instead I made a quick yogurt parfait. Chobani was an exhibitor at the conference and they had a yogurt bar that was to die for! It convinced me that I don’t need to buy cups of artificially sweetened yogurt. A tub of fat free greek, some fresh fruit a little honey is amazing! Greek Yogurt Parfait

So on the way home from the airport I stopped at the grocery store to pick up a few supplies instead of the the drive-thru and made myself an amazing breakfast. Here’s what I did…

  • 1 cup fresh berries (I used strawberries and blackberries)
  • 1/2 cup Fat Free Yogurt (I used Greek)
  • 1/2 oz Almonds chopped (14g)
  • 1 tbsp Cocoa Nibs (Found in the spice isle, can use mini chips chopped up)
  • 1/2 tbsp honey (14g)

Layer all the ingredients starting with berries. I did berries, yogurt, almond, cocoa nibs, honey and repeated until I was out of ingredients saving a small dollop of yogurt for the top.

If you are new to cocoa nibs, they are simply cracked cocoa beans, unsweetened. A great way to add a little chocolate hint with a fun texture.

Little Guy doesn’t like them so he asked for his own parfait with more berries, less yogurt and no cocoa nibs. His wish was my command. :)

Other combos I’ve been dreaming up for yogurt parfaits…

  • Banana slices, cocoa nibs, peanuts
  • Diced apple and cinnamon toast crunch
  • Mango and granola
  • Walnuts, raspeberries and honey

    I’ve been using plain Chobani lately too (stay tuned for my post). I never would have thought to use coooa nibs — I will give that a try, but I cannot keep Cinnamon Toast Crunch in my house ….

    I have a hard time with it too but it’s the only “suga cereal” I buy for the boys. SO it’s a treat every few months. Thankfully my husband usually finishes before I get a chance to have a bowl. lol

    Oh man, you were in my city and I didn’t even know it! =(

    I love plain Greek yogurt, but usually mix it with frozen berries because it sorta goes all icecream-like. Yum.

    Yiu inspired me to finally get into smoothies. Even though your post is about parfait I wanted to share. I bought a blender called the nutribullet. It’s like the magic bullet on steroids. I had kale, frozen mango chunks, some chia, and some kefir. Voila! Yum. I did add a tsp of cocoa powder after. I love the special dark. Thanks for the inspiration. I lost 65 lbs, and have to lose like 40 more and I’ve been stuck. I’m hoping smoothies with change things up a bit.

    Yummy! I should try this. I really like the Chobani Champions vanilla chocolate chip greek yogurt but I will try this with the cocoa nibs. Sounds delish!
