Strawberry Blueberry Yogurt Parfaits are healthy, budget-friendly, no bake desserts made with greek yogurt, granola, strawberries, and blueberries, and are sweet, creamy, crunchy and yummy!
As I mentioned previously, I’m currently cooking for my Mother-in-Law who is diabetic, and recently had heart surgery and requires a heart healthy, diabetic diet. If that is not enough, she also has a fierce sweet tooth. Trying to reconcile the dietary requirements with her sweet tooth is a challenge to say the least.
In addition, I have a full-time job in addition to blogging. So, like many of you, I’m busier than a centipede in a shoe lace tying competition. So I need a dessert that is quick and easy and no fuss.
And, of course, my family, especially my Mother-in-Law needs to like it. If I mention greek yogurt, she says she does not like the taste. However, if I ask if she would like strawberries, blueberries and cream, then it is ok. I add a little diabetic sugar to the greek yogurt as well as the berries, and she loves it! Shhhhhhhhh!!!!!!! Don’t tell her.
I also like the versatility of this because it can either be breakfast, dessert, or an afternoon snack. So easy!! You can use a store bought granola. However, I just toasted some oats and pecans for about 8 minutes in the oven and was good to go. And, it is SOOO much cheaper than buying prepared granola! Saahhhweeet!!
