We’re at that time of year when the kids are getting out for their break and summer fun will begin. (Where did the time go?? Wasn’t it just Christmas?) Soon, pool visits, vacations, and yummy summer treats will abound.

I wanted to contribute something delicious to your summer treat arsenal, so I adapted a really simple and delicious parfait recipe that I found on Parents.com. It’s a lot more nutritious than your standard summer desert of ice cream, but, in my opinion, equally as delicious. It’s a parfait treat that you AND the kids will absolutely love.

My twins and I LOVE fruit; and we have yogurt every morning with breakfast. Mixing two of our favorites and adding a bit of graham cracker yumminess yielded one of the best sweet treats that any of us had ever tasted. (And this is made with Greek yogurt which is all the rage right now. Mmmm.)

Make this for breakfast, or save it for a snack. It would even make the perfect dessert after your Memorial Day barbecue. Enjoy!

    This is a great idea – love the idea of the graham crackers, especially if I don’t have any of my homemade granola around. Brilliant! Also try roasting your fruit sometime – it would be AWESOME in this parfait. It’s like nature’s candy. Just add a bit of sweetener and liquid like balsamic vinegar and pop in the oven. It will create such a delicious syrup and the fruit it sublime as is or pureed. YUM!

    Yum!! I often buy fruit and yogurt parfaits at airports when traveling for business but never actually thought about recreating them at home. Wowza – these look good!
