Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Strawberry Yogurt Granola Parfaits
Layers of tangy non-fat Greek yogurt, sliced fresh strawberries, and granola spooned into a glass is a fun, healthy and delicious way to start the day.
The Skinny on Strawberry Yogurt Granola Parfaits
These strawberry yogurt granola parfaits will fill you up without weighing you down.
But, I need to be honest here. Layered fresh fruit and yogurt parfaits are not something I make during the week. They’re just a little too fussy.
Monday through Friday, I just dump the yogurt, berries and crunchy cereal (saving the granola for a special weekend treat) into a bowl…
Though, not as attractive, it tastes just as good and saves a few minutes.
But on the weekends, when I have a little more time, I like to fancy things up a bit. And these strawberry, yogurt and granola parfaits do the trick.
To keep them light and healthy, it’s important to choose your ingredients carefully. There are huge variations in the amount of fat, calories and Points values among yogurts and cereals, especially granola.
I’m a huge fan of non-fat Greek yogurt. If you’re not, just choose your favorite yogurt and adjust the WW Points values accordingly.
Another trick is to drizzle your honey, maple syrup, or agave, over the yogurt instead of stirring it in, so you can really taste it and be satisfied with less.
And go heavy with the Zero Points value fruit and light with the granola, which adds great flavor and crunch, but can be high in Points. So use just a sprinkle.
And if you are feeling especially ambitious, you can even make your own homemade granola. It’s a treat, but not something I do all the time.
According to my calculations, each parfait has about 205 calories, *5 Weight Watchers PointsPlus, *5 WW Freestyle SmartPoints.
