Mr. Lazy Cook Tweaks the High Fiber Parfait Recipe

I wrote my High Fiber Parfait recipe right after we started the blog. I said I loved it, ate it every day and would rather eat it than a bowl of ice cream.

My parfait never looked anything like this masterpiece

That is still true, but I have recently become concerned about my intake of dairy products and since this had close to two cups of yogurt and about a 1/4 cup of kefir, I decided that was too much dairy for me to eat at one meal.

Hence the new recipe. I have eliminated all the yogurt and the kefir and just use one cup of skimmed milk.

While not artistic, Mr. Lazy Cook’s looks pretty tasty …

With the yogurts and kefir eliminated, it is probably more accurate to call it a bowl of high fiber cereal with strawberries.

Recipe
Add 8 ounces of Kashi’s Go Lean cereal (much like granola)
Add a couple of strawberries cut into small pieces
If I have fresh blueberries around, I add a handful
Pour the milk over this, stir awhile and serve. The stirring is necessary to get all the Go Lean soaked with milk. Otherwise, it can be hard to chew.

Instead of the 478 calories in the original, this comes in just under 300 calories.

Editor’s Note: I still make this wonderful parfait regularly, BUT I no longer use Kashi’s Go Lean or any other Kashi product since they employ GMO ingredients. Just substitute a granola of your choice and this recipe stands.
