Yogurt and fruit make a refreshing snack. When topped with bran cereal, the parfait is both smooth and crunchy, and provides fibre, calcium, vitamins and minerals.
½ cup Fresh, frozen, or canned fruit
(berries, bananas, peaches, strawberries, or your favourite fruit
in season ) 125 mL
¾ cup Fruit-flavoured 1% M.F. yogurt
(choose yogurt with no sugar substitutes) 175 mL
¼ cup Flaked bran cereal 60 mL
Note: Choose canned fruits packed in light juice or water. Fruits canned in syrup are higher in added sugar.
1. Wash and peel (if necessary) and cut up fruit into small bite-size pieces.
2. Spoon half of the yogurt into a clear glass or dessert bowl.
3. Top yogurt with half of the fruit.
4. Repeat the yogurt and fruit layers.
5. Sprinkle with cereal.
