Recently I've really been into eating Berry Yogurt Parfaits as dessert. It's healthy, smooth, crunchy and sweet. Since I'm abstaining from cattle and pork for sustainability reasons, I've learned that a lot of yogurts contain gelatin and that originates from cows and pigs. But don't fret there are a lot of delicious animal-free yogurt alternatives which use soy milk as the base. Just look for "Dairy Free" and check if it contains gelatin in the ingredients section.
For this parfait recipe, I love using granola as the main crunch factor. I could probably eat sweetened granola on its own because it's so good. My husband purchases Love Crunch: Dark Chocolate and Berries by Nature's Path Organic. It compliments the fresh berries well because it contains freeze-dried berries. It's also organic, Non-GMO, the chocolate is FREE-TRADE and did I mention it's a Canadian company too? You can find it at any Wholefoods store but I've provided their store locator link here.
This recipe takes less than 10 minutes to make and it's a great and healthy dessert for adults and kids! Hope you enjoy it as much as me.
