Apple Walnut Parfait

Yogurt is one of my favorite snacks!  It’s delicious.   Not only that, it’s great for you…that is, as long as you aren’t eating the sugar laden versions with little to no nutrition in them.  Stick to organic, plain, unsweetened yogurt with live active cultures, and you are eating a powerhouse of nutrition (My favorite is Stonyfield organic plain greek yogurt – yum)!  This pin lists some of the health benefits of yogurt.

If the taste of plain yogurt is less than desirable to you, then you can add things to it to make it nice and tasty!  This apple walnut parfait is SO good!  It is one of my favorite things to eat, and I have it about 3-4 times per week…I could honestly eat it all day everyday, because it’s so delicious!

APPLE WALNUT PARFAIT

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 – 1/2 tsp. alcohol free vanilla (optional)

Directions:

1.) If you wish to sweeten your yogurt a bit with the vanilla and stevia, Add the yogurt, vanilla, and stevia to a small bowl and stir to mix together.

2.) In a cup, place one layer of 1/2 of the yogurt followed by a layer 1/2 of the apples and 1/2 of the walnuts.  Repeat this with the rest of the yogurt apples and walnuts.
