Berry Parfaits

Anyone want a snack?

How about a KISS?

I often eat yogurt as a healthy snack during the day.  It's tangy creaminess makes me feel like I'm cheating.  I usually get the "lite" version which has less sugar and carbs. 

When it starts to get berry season I crave fruit.  Walking through the produce section of the store makes me long for summer!  The other day I spotted the first ripe strawberries of the season (locally grown!) and some gorgeous blueberries.

I had to have I did.

Now this is just the easiest thing to make.  You just need 2 individual yogurt cups (any flavor you choose), some cut up strawberries, blueberries, and some Cheerios cereal for a little crunch!

Here's how you put this together.  Take two pretty glasses.  Add 1/2 container of vanilla yogurt in each glass.  Add some sliced strawberries, blueberries, and some cereal.  Add another layer of yogurt using 1/2 of the container per glass.  I used strawberry.  Add more cereal, sliced strawberries, and top with  blueberries.

KISS - keep it super simple!

Enjoy your snack!
