Strawberry and Lime Parfait

Believe it or not, this was a request from my 11-year old. He professed a love for fruit and yogurt parfaits over the weekend and said how excited he was for school to start so he could have them again.  Way To Go, School Lunch!! You are succeeding in helping my children to love healthy food. 

These couldn't be easier to make, and honestly, I feel a little bit bad that he had to ask me to make them (because we didn't have a box of granola and that required a trip to the store) Now that I know how much he enjoys them (and they were quite a hit with everyone else too - I will try and make sure we have the supplies) 

All you need is some fruit, granola and a bit of yogurt. We sat down together and decided what might be a flavor combination that we wanted to try and we decided on lime and strawberries.  We were leaning a bit towards the raspberries, but the store was completely out of them and so that was decided for us. 

As we were eating the whole family got talking about how they would make their perfect parfait. Some said they would like to add bananas to their strawberries and perhaps some banana cream pie yogurt. There were lots of requests for vanilla yogurt and some for blueberries. That is the beauty of making something like this. There are almost limitless possibilities as to what you can add to make it something you like. (unless the store is out of the berries that you wanted to buy)
