Raspberry Yogurt Parfait

There is nothing fancy or gourmet about this parfait but it is simple and delicious. Greek yogurt has a lot of protein and the homemade granola is packed with nuts, oats and healthy seeds. It's sweet, creamy, crunchy and good for you all at the same time. 


Homemade granola (recipe available on this blog)
Homemade raspberry jam (recipe available on this blog)
Vanilla or Greek low-fat yogurt


Layer as much and however you like. I used 3/4 cup of yogurt with 2 heaping teaspoons of jam. Top with a handful of granola and add more as needed. 

If you are feeling fancy you can do a 3/4 ricotta cheese to 1/4 yogurt mixture for extra creaminess. The texture seems a little odd in the first couple bites but it's really good and really popular in Italy (or so I hear).

Or add fresh fruit.
