Ingredients

80-100g of Greek Yogurt: 

Picture of greek yogurt or strained curd made at home

You can either purchase flavoured greek or fruit yogurt from the shelf or use plain dahi or yoghurt as well if you want to avoid the added sugar. Alternatively, you can strain the regular curd to create your own greek yoghurt at home and mix it with fruit.

2 tbsp of an assorted, unsalted trail mix

You can purchase or create a trail mix consisting of roasted flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, melon seeds, sunflower seeds, and sesame seeds.

Trail mix with nuts, seeds, and dried fruits

A handful of assorted nuts: 

Our recommendation is that you go with almonds, walnuts, unsalted roasted cashews etc. You can either crush or slice them or add them whole based on your preferred style of garnishing.

¼ cup or more of your preferred brand of Muesli or Granola

Make your own granola at home or buy it from a trusted brand. Many home bakers in your area may be selling it too.

: As far as the granola is concerned, you can either make your own or buy it off of the shelf. 

1 cup of your favourite fruits, chopped

 Our recommendations of the fruits that go best with the Yogurt Granola Parfait are kiwi, apples, bananas, blueberries, strawberries, mango, pomegranate seeds and cranberries.

Garnish – 5-6 leaves of mint & dried fruits

Fresh mint leaves will add a perfect cooling flavour to the whole mix. You might think that the mint leaf doesn’t belong in the dish and may not be that essential to it. But take our word for it – try the recipe with and without the mint leaves, and you’ll know the difference yourself. 

You can also add some chopped dried fruits like apricots, figs, berries etc to top this Yogurt Granola Bowl recipe. If you really want to take it a notch further, you can add and mix a dollop of peanut butter to enhance the taste.

You can buy all of these ingredients online from the Milkbasket grocery shopping app. Once you download the Milkbasket app and start shopping, you’ll find different types of options from a variety of brands and producers. 

Yogurt Granowla Bowl Recipe

  • Take a bowl or a jar, or a glass, whichever is your preferred dish for enjoying it.
  • Lay a bed of granola at the base of the bowl
  • Layer the bed with the smear of your Greek Yogurt
  • Add Chopped fruits on top of the two layers
  • Sprinkle the trail mix seeds on the top along with the nuts & dried fruits.
  • You can also add a few drops of peanut butter to add to the taste and increase the nutritional value of your parfait
  • Add just a teaspoonful drizzle of honey, if you’d like, on the top for added taste and sweetness
  • Garnish with a few mint sprigs.

Now, the recipe above makes for one layer of the parfait. You can add as many layers on top as you want basing on your hunger and nutritional needs. Even the layers don’t have to be in a specific order according to the recipe above!

We really hope you enjoy this healthy snack/dessert. If you have your own recipe ideas for a parfait, share with us in the comments or tag us in your stories on Instagram!
