Easy Yogurt Parfait


For a light, refreshing dessert or snack, here's an easy way to make yourself a quick parfait:
  • 1/4 c. fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 medium banana, sliced
  • 1 tbsp Strawberry Icebox Jam (or Strawberry Apple Jam)
  • 1 tbsp cashew pieces
  • 1/4 c. plain kefir (liquid yogurt)
Combine ingredients in a dish and serve.

The fruits give you sweetness and a variety of flavors. The cashews give you texture. The kefir provides a cool backdrop. The protein in the kefir and the fat in the cashews help slow down absorption of the natural sugars in the fruits.
