Yogurt Parfait

I’m cat sitting for a few days and she wanted to play and cuddle all night and kept waking me up. I’m dragging as a result this morning so I needed a pick-me-up and today it was a parfait. Creamy, crunchy and sweet all blended in one cup, could not be better.

½ cup vanilla yogurt (I used coconut yogurt)
½ cup granola
½ tbsp. agave nectar
½ cup berries (I used raspberries)
Mash the berries with agave to juice them but not puree them. Use a fork to whip the yogurt to make it fluffy. Place half  the berries in the bottom of an individual serving glass or bowl, layer with half of the yogurt and then half of the granola and then repeat. 

About Green Mom

Fredrica Syren, the author and founder of Green-Mom.com, was born in Sweden. Her mother was a classically trained chef who introduced her to many eclectic flavors and skills at a young age. Her mom’s passion for the outdoors and gardening planted the seed for her own love of nature and healthy eating. She received a degree in journalism and has worked as a print, Internet and broadcasting journalist for many years with big businesses within Europe and the United States. After her mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer and she with pre-cancer, Fredrica changed her career to become a full time yoga teacher and activist. A longtime world traveler, foodie and career woman, she was exposed to many facets of life, but nothing inspired her more than becoming a mom.

Years of food blogging developed into the cookbook Yummy in My Tummy, Healthy Cooking for the Whole Family. Upon the arrival of her second child, Fredrica founded Green-Mom.com. Her vision was to establish a site providing insight about gardening, home and personal care, baby & child, and of course food & nutrition.
