Summer is a great time to eat all of you favorite fruits, because they are fresh and refreshing to eat! Also, June 25th is national strawberry parfait day, and because of that I have included a strawberry parfait recipe from Kansas State Research and Extension’s program called “Kids a Cookin’”. This recipe is made for children to make and enjoy, but it is just as good for adults and easy to make.
6 tablespoons vanilla yogurt, divided
2 heaping tablespoons cereal, either flakes or nuggets
2 tablespoons strawberries or crushed pineapple
1 teaspoon chopped peanuts
1 teaspoon mini-chocolate chips (optional)
- Measure 2 tablespoons of yogurt into an 8-ounce clear cup.
- Sprinkle cereal on top.
- Spread 2 more tablespoons of yogurt on top.
- Spread fruit on top.
- Add 2 more tablespoons of yogurt.
- Top with chopped peanuts and chocolate chips.
Hope you enjoy this treat while trying to beat the heat!
