Try a High Fiber Parfait – Mr. Lazy Cook

This is one of my favorite dishes of all time and an excellent example from Mr. Lazy Cook. I have one virtually every day of my life. It is an awesome snack after a bike ride or anything that tires me out. There is something about the combination of flavors of the various yogurts and kefir that I just love. This is a dish that I look forward to all morning and then feel disappointed about as soon as I have finished it. It weighs a pound and leaves me feeling wonderfully satisfied after eating. I would rather eat this high fiber parfait than a bowl of ice cream, and I love ice cream.

The yogurt goes on top of this…

I use a medium sized bowl that holds around a quart.

Pour in enough Strawberry Kefir to cover the bowl’s bottom
Add 2 ounces of Kashi’s Go Lean cereal(similar to granola) (2013 change Because Kashi has GMO ingredients, I no longer use it. Granola is fine.)
Add a couple of strawberries cut into small pieces. A few blueberries are always nice, too.
Next, pour in 3/4 cup of Vanilla no fat yogurt.
Finally, pour in 3/4 cup of Plain whole milk yogurt.
Stir well and serve.

Food values include:
478 calories, total fat 9.2 grams, Saturated fat 0.4 grams, cholesterol 27.2 mg, sodium 325 mg, Carbs 77 grams, Fiber 8.4 grams Protein 27.1 grams.

Editor’s Note: I still make this wonderful parfait regularly, BUT I no longer use Kashi’s Go Lean nor any other Kashi product since they employ GMO ingredients. Just substitute a granola of your choice and this recipe stands.

I tweaked this recipe on March 14, 2011 to reduce the yogurt and calories.

I did one final(?) tweak on May 13, 2011.
