Yogurt Parfait | Fruit and Granola

This yogurt parfait recipe is made with vanilla yogurt, fresh fruit, and crunchy granola. Serve it up for breakfast or enjoy it as a protein-packed snack!

Two glasses of layered yogurt with berries and granola on the table

Of course, you can use whatever yogurt you like but if you haven’t tried Wallaby yogurt, you are in for a treat. What I love about this vanilla bean Greek yogurt is how tasty it is. It is also a mellow and creamy yogurt. It’s almost like it has been whipped.

Then add layers of fruit and granola between the tasty yogurt and you have a winning and satisfying taste treat.

Helpful tips

  • I love creamy Greek yogurt, but if you can’t find the Wallaby brand, then use what you like or even a smooth regular vanilla yogurt.
  • Use a granola that won’t be overpowering, such as vanilla chocolate chip (pictured).
  • I love the combination of strawberries and cherries together, but use whichever fresh berries you prefer, like fresh raspberries and blueberries.
  • Other ingredients that taste delicious in a parfait: bananas, nuts, coconut, mini chocolate chips, peanut butter, drizzled maple syrup, and chia seeds.
  • Use organic fruit whenever you can because there is a taste difference.
  • That said, always wash fruit thoroughly, even organic fruit.
  • I find two layers of all the ingredients is a healthy amount, but you could do this parfait in three layers if you keep the layers thinner.
  • Use a nice glass to house the yogurt parfait since we eat with our eyes as well as our mouths.
  • You can use any combination of fruit but I like to use contrasting colors.

Notes

When I make this, I don’t measure out the ingredients, this is a rough measure.  I dollop the yogurt in the glass and eyeball how much I want.  I believe I used close to a cup of yogurt in each parfait.
Tips for making this yogurt parfait recipe:
  • Use organic fruit and granola whenever you can.  There is a taste difference
  • I find two layers of all the ingredients is a healthy amount, but you could do this parfait in three layers if you keep the layers thinner
  • Wash fruit thoroughly, even organic fruit
  • Use a granola that won’t be overpowering, like a vanilla (chocolate chip) like I did
  • Use a nice glass to house the yogurt parfait since we eat with our eyes as well as our mouths
  • You can use any combination of fruit.  I like to have two contrasting colors of fruit

  5. This looks like dessert for breakfast. You can never go wrong with that. I don’t think we have that brand in Canada, but it does sound great. I love when healthy is so easy and delicious. I think my grandkids would love this for their school lunch too.

  6. I don’t recall seeing that brand around here, but will have to look out for next time I’m at the grocery. Love yogurt and always have stocked in the fridge. And hubby is a huge kefir fan. Sounds like a tasty product too πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Dawn, I’ve been eating their yogurt for over 10 years. I used to eat the chocolate on the bottom flavor but couldn’t find it again when I moved. But I love all their flavors but am very fond of the vanilla bean. And the kefir – mango all the way!

  7. This yogurt parfait sounds amazing! Also, that vanilla chocolate chip granola sounds so good!! Did you make it yourself?

  8. Super valuable post! I’ve not heard of this brand of yogurt but I’m all over it now! Thank you so much for this information!! Can’t wait to give this recipe a try!!

  10. The perfect breakfast for busy mornings since it whips up in less than 5 minutes! It’s also packed full of good stuff that’s perfect to fuel you through the day.

  11. I am such a fan of this brand and eat their yogurt with a peach flavor almost every morning! I like the parfait recipe too! so easy to make!)

  12. You know, I have a couple of old fashioned parfait glasses around – and you’ve just given me a fun idea for a Special Day Breakfast… And mango kefir? I usually make my own, but I’d break down and buy it for mango…

    1. Thanks Anne! Mango is so delicious. My 11 year old great nephew said, “This is better than chocolate milk!”

  14. These are gorgeous and sound absolutely delicious! I’m always looking for healthy, delicious breakfasts so I’m definitely going to have to try this.

  15. I love granola and yogurt partfaits for breakfast! Although this post makes me feel like my family has defective tastebuds — we have done blind taste tests of organic vs nonorganic fruit and have never been able to taste a difference. We do love buying local from the farmers market, though!

    1. I don’t think you have defective taste buds. I think it’s because I’ve been eating organic for so long, I can tell when it isn’t. Thanks for your comment, Julie!

  16. I will be saving this breakfast idea for next week. I have already been to the grocery store this week, but I will be starting my days with this very soon.

  17. This looks delicious! I’m searching for a recipe that I can make in lil disposable shot glasses (with a mini spoon) for a brunch soon. Your recipe fits the bill! Can this be made in advance or will the granola get soggy? Will it hold up for a few hours? Any other tips or thoughts that might help? Thank you in advance.

    1. Great idea, Faye. I think the granola will be fine for a few hours. I use a really hearty brand of granola that I get at whole foods and that holds up really well! It has lots of clumps in it, which I think helps. I’d also try not to pack the yogurt on the granola so it has less of a chance to get soggy. Good luck and have a great brunch!
