Fresh Fruit and Yogurt Parfaits

  • 1/2 pineapple, finely diced

  • 2 cups blueberries

  • 2 mangos, finely diced

  • 2 cups strawberries, sliced thinly

Oil-Free Granola

  • 3/4 cup brown sugar

  • 1/4 cup hot water

  • 2 teaspoons Gefen Vanilla

  • dash salt

  • 4 cups rolled oats

  • 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts


Prepare the Granola


Preheat the oven to 325ºF. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it and spraying with non-stick baking spray.


Combine the brown sugar and hot water so that the brown sugar dissolves somewhat. Add the vanilla and salt. Add oats and nuts. Mix thoroughly until you have combined  all the ingredients very well.


Spread the mixture on prepared baking sheet and bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool. The granola will get crunchier as it cools. You can break up the large chunks so that you have granola bits.

Prepare the Parfaits


Combine yogurt and maple syrup.


Place a heaping tablespoons of the yogurt mixture on the bottom of each parfait glass, followed by a heaping tablespoon of pineapple and blueberries.


Sprinkle with granola, then top with additional yogurt and mango and strawberries. Continue to layer until glass is full.

Prepare the Parfaits

Yield: approximately 8 parfaits (depending on the size of the glass)
