So we all get those afternoon munchies. I like to combat that with a tasty parfait. 🙂
It’s fairly simple and quick. I toss in what ever fruit I have on hand. (In this case it’s organic strawberries, blueberries, and banana. ) Add some non-dairy yogurt (still has those probiotics and is lactose-intolerant friendly!). Then top it with some of my Homemade Cinnamon Maple Granola . Sometimes throw in some chia for kicks 😉 .
Chia seeds are the best. Not only are they filled with protein, iron, fiber, and healthy fats, they’re virtually tasteless. So you can add them to almost anything!
I’ve recently found that I like Nancy’s Organic Soy Yogurt. I’ve found the flavor to be better than other non-dairy yogurts I’ve tasted. So Delicious came out with a Greek yogurt.. It wasn’t bad.. not the same as regular greek yogurt, and has a lot of fiber (40% of your daily value). I found the taste wasn’t exactly what I was looking for.
Although feel free to experiment with this parfait! It’s easily customizable, filling, and tasty. Not to mention has a good source of antioxidants, probiotics, and fiber !
*If you can eat dairy, I would suggest plain greek yogurt and adding a little maple syrup to sweeten. A lot of flavored yogurts are full of sugar and unnecessary additives- its best to just flavor your own!
Creating your own snack is so much better than that packaged vending machine nonsense 😉
