Keara’s Dish – Homemade Yogurt Parfait

Posted on


Looking for a simple, fulfilling and nutritious snack? Look no further than this delightful Greek yogurt parfait! 

While Greek yogurt is a great source of protein, it also provides your body with calcium, vitamin B12 and probiotics, which help promote digestive wellness. By adding fruits to your parfait bowl, you are not just enhancing its flavour but also boosting its fibre content and adding a variety of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to your diet. If you choose plain Greek yogurt, the honey and cinnamon will add sweetness. Honey is a natural sweetener and contains vitamins and minerals. For added customization, consider making your own granola or select a favourite from your local grocery store. 

For the best protein-rich Greek yogurt options, consider brands like:

  • Oikos
  • Siggi’s
  • Liberte
  • President’s Choice Greek Yogurt

Each brand offers a range of flavours and fat content to suit your preferences.
