Simple Sunday: Apple Parfait

As we have said before, a really important part of healthy eating is healthy snacking! We don’t know too many people who can make it all the way from lunch to dinner (or breakfast to lunch, or dinner to bedtime…) without needing that extra something to tie them over until then.

Snacks should be quick, easy and not complicated. At the same time they should be enjoyable, tasty, and of course, nutritious! After all, every time you eat is a chance to give your body important nutrients. That being said, each time you eat should also be fun and exciting, right?

Right! :)

And it should be pretty, too, because pretty food tastes better! (and that’s a scientific fact!)

Well, ok, that may or may not be scientific, but the proof is in the pudding apple parfait!

Fresh, juicy and sweet apple chunks layered with creamy yogurt and crunchy granola, this snack was a snap to prepare and out-of-this-world delicious!

We used plain yogurt mixed with vanilla and cinnamon, but you can use any flavour you want! (Apple – berry anyone?) Also, any granola will do just fine, pick your favourite! For our parfaits, we made an apple-cinnamon version of this granola (recipe to come!). If you’re using store-bought granola, make sure you read the nutrition label to make sure it’s not too high in sugar (10g or more per serving), and watch for aspartame in sweetened yogurt.

The process is simple: Assemble your ingredients, find a pretty glass and layer them up!

Enjoy! :)
